Global Association for
Interpersonal Neurobiology Studies

Welcome! The Global Association for Interpersonal Neurobiology Studies (GAINS) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to advance the science, practice, and application of interpersonal neurobiology to promote health and wellbeing. We are an inclusive, international community bringing our understanding of minds, brains, and relationship into healthcare, education, leadership, research, parenting, and more.

We are the "Connectome" for Folks Applying IPNB! Check out this video and reflect on the beauty of our interconnected brains.

Fire and Wire - the connectome (A Max Planck CBS Production).

"This video shows functional MRI, functional connectivity, MEG data, Diffusion Tensor and HARDI reconstruction using Sperical Deconvolution and finally diffusion MRI brain fiber tractography."
