Discover. Learn. Become.

The mission of CNS is to help people make better decisions and to identify why some people consistently make poor decisions. CNS conducts research using both healthy subjects and neurologic and psychiatric patients with collaborators world-wide.

Oxytocin

The lab discovered that the neurochemical oxytocin connects us to other people and makes us work to help them. Oxytocin is also part of the brain circuit that causes us to be immersed in stories and experiences, to recall the information in them, and to be persuaded to take actions.
