The Brain Behaviour Initiative: an introduction

31 March 2008

The Brain Behaviour Initiative, aka BBI, is a UCT signature theme that integrates different approaches to studying brain-behaviour issues relevant to the local context.

The initial focus is on trauma and resilience, but several other areas of collaborative research are now underway, integrating methods such as brain imaging, neurogenetics, and neuropsychology.

In addition, a Cross-University Brain-Behaviour Initiative (CUBBI), involving several BBI researchers, has been funded as a National Research Foundation (NRF) research niche area.

Between them, UCT and Stellenbosch University now have three NRF chairs established to work in this area. Click here for more details of CUBBI principal investigators and their projects.
