Medical College of Wisconsin Neuroscience Research Center

The Medical College of Wisconsin's Neuroscience Research Center (NRC) is a catalyst for advancing new, cutting-edge medications and strategies to prevent and treat neurological disorders. We strive to enhance basic and translational neuroscience at MCW through the development of an MCW-wide programmatic plan. By integrating with MCW’s other key departments, as well as leading neuroscientists throughout Milwaukee and beyond, the NRC emphasizes the importance of collaborative neuroscience research in strengthening and differentiating clinical care at MCW and its affiliates.

A Chat with a Neuroscientist – You Are Not Imagining It: Stress is Real!

Dr. Cecilia Hillard, Director of the NRC and Benjamin Wagner, JD, President of the NRC Community Board, recently had a discussion about stress: what it is, what it does to our bodies and how to manage it. We hope that you find their talk helpful in these challenging times.
