Actually the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla already had a
department devoted to research on the brain (i.e. the Dept, of
Neuropharmacology whose chairman is Floyd Bloom). We are very pleased
that the Neuroscience group from Rockefeller is coming to join us. As
long as departments within institutions are acceptable answers to the
original posted question I should point out that many universities do
have depts. devoted to Neuroscience.
