The Center for Biopsychosocial Research
The Center for Biopsychosocial Research seeks to understand the interactions between neural and biologic systems and the social, psychological, and spiritual/religious functioning of persons. Major areas of study have involved the cognitive disabilities associated with congenital brain abnormalities, the role of interactions between the two cerebral hemispheres in higher human mental processes, autonomic/affective responses in depression and panic disorder, and health and illness prevention.
