Hi and welcome to the Neurosquad webpage. We are a group of local neuroscientists (e.g. FAU, Max Planck, Scripps) who care deeply about the science of brain structure and function, leading to insights for autism, major depression, schizophrenia, pain syndromes, addiction, Alzheimer's and other diseases of the brain. Although professionally we are neuroscientists, we are also people who have personal experiences with many of these disorders. Those experiences fuel our passion for the science and our desire to work to find new treatments to alleviate the pain for individuals, and their families, suffering from many devastating brain disorders.
We strive to raise awareness and erase the stigma associated with mental illness through outreach, research, and educational programs in the community. Please join us (and our dogs) as we walk to support Autism Speaks and brain science.
