What we do
– Basic and applied neuroscience
The research at the Sagol Center focuses on understanding the mechanisms of mental health and well-being and testing interventions derived of these findings. We focus on the following topics: Understanding the neural and physiological correlates of interpersonal connection, Understanding the mechanisms of brain resilience, and Testing the impact of increased self-awareness through mental exercises such as mindfulness training and biofeedback.
– Neuroeducation – knowledge dissemination
We work to provide neuroscientific training for a broad audience of educators, therapists and other mental health professionals. We further work with schools to create and incorporate educational paradigms and programs that draw from updated findings in neuroscience. Finally, we disseminate recent findings regarding our ability to train our minds and improve our mental health to the general public. These community-based training programs are managed by the Muda Institute for Mindfulness, Science and Society.
