Over the past few years, MRRI has been producing videos of our scientists explaining their research projects and the implications of what they are learning for the field. It is all part of our mission to improve the lives of individuals with neurological disabilities through research.
Now, you can explore the videos in one place on the MRRI YouTube channel.
Here are some of the videos you’ll find there:
