Welcome to the forefront of neuroscientific exploration at EPFL, where education, research, and innovation converge to unravel the mysteries of the brain. Our interdisciplinary approach spans theory, molecules, cells, circuits, and behavior, leveraging cutting-edge technology, artificial intelligence and machine learning and  to comprehend brain systems at various scales. Embracing a polytechnic approach, we pioneer inventive methods to decode the healthy and impaired nervous system and are committed to translating these breakthroughs into tangible benefits for patients.

Join us in shaping the future of fundamental and translational neurosciences, neurotechnology and neurocomputation through transformative learning, groundbreaking research, and revolutionary technological advancements.

This site allows you to apprehend the way teaching, research, and innovation fit together, as well as to see the range of interactions we have with partners throughout the lemanic area.

Education

Research

EPFL is fully committed to the respect of ethical standards in research in order to protect those involved in research. Research involving animals, is carried out at the Center of Phenogenomics, or ethically reviewed by the Animal Research Ethics Committe (AREC) if carried out abroad. The Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) ethically reviews research projects carried out by EPFL researchers and involving human participants and/or personal data.

Researchers at the BMI develop and deploy technology to understand brain systems across scales from theory, to molecules, cells, circuits and behavior.

The alliance of neurosciences, neurotechnology and neurocomputation, for medicine.
