At this level of analysis, neuroscientists investigate how small and large networks of neurons form and encode or decode information in the brain for a wide variety of behaviors, including sensory perception, motor control, memory, attention, or language. NYU faculty members explore many of these major research areas in both healthy and disease brains.
