“As long as our brain is a mystery, the universe, the reflection of the structure of the brain will also be a mystery.”
― Santiago Ramón y Cajal, pathologist, histologist, neuroscientist and Nobel laureate
|Welcome to the sixth issue of UC Merced Magazine, focusing on the brain and the research being conducted into the mysteries of the mind at UC Merced.
In this issue, you’ll see how the Cognitive and Information Sciences group takes a holistic approach to studying the brain, and how looking at what’s inside our skulls transcends disciplines, from psychology to engineering.
You’ll also read about extraordinary students and alumni, a professor whose own illness led to his research into immunology and find links to some of the beautiful and inspiring videos produced at UC Merced this year.
We hope you enjoy the spring 2016 issue of UC Merced Magazine, and, as always, we welcome your feedback.
