The Vanderbilt Silvio O. Conte Center for Neuroscience Research, established through funding from the National Institute of Mental Health and the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, supports research and training to elucidate gene, protein and cellular networks through which serotonin (5-HT) modulates brain development, signaling, plasticity and mental illness.

In conjunction with the Vanderbilt Brain Institute, the Conte Center is proud to present Brain Matters, a series of interactive exhibits about the brain at Vanderbilt Health, One Hundred Oaks.
