Neurological Disorders

Compared to other types of diseases, many disorders of the nervous system have proven particularly difficult to diagnose and treat. Scripps researchers are mapping the complex circuitry of the brain and pinpointing how diseases disrupt our ability to feel, move and think, rapidly advancing our knowledge of the nervous system and our ability to keep it healthy. At long last, we are turning the tables on disorders ranging from autism to addiction to Alzheimer’s disease.
