The Emotional Brain Institute (EBI) is a joint initiative between New York University and New York State. The goals of EBI are to understand emotions and their impact on mind and behavior, to use emotion to bridge between scientific and other academic disciplines, and to enhance public understanding of emotions and the brain (see EBI Mission). EBI members are located at the Washington Square Campus of NYU, the NYU/Langone Medical Center, and the Nathan Kline Institute (NKI) (see EBI Sites).
