Science and community come together at Columbia’s Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute.

We are delighted to call Manhattanville home and eager to share with our neighbors the challenge and excitement of learning how our minds and brains work. Our Education Lab, located near the 129th Street entrance of the Jerome L. Greene Science Center, is open year-round and hosts a variety of hands-on brain science programs. Designed with feedback from the community, these programs harness the groundbreaking research of the institute in creative ways for school children, families, after-school groups, teachers and adults. Contact us to learn more about our programs; we have only just begun!
