What is the Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences? Is it associated with the University of Washington?

The Institute is an interdisciplinary research unit created to conduct innovative research on lifelong learning and the brain using both behavioral and neuroscience methods. It is part of the UW, although it is not a traditional academic "department," because it is home to scientists with diverse expertise such as developmental psychology, speech and hearing science, engineering, neuroscience and linguistics who come together around focal scientific issues in learning.
