The Cajal Institute, eventhough is one of the world oldest centers for Neurobiological research, currently has a modern organization of its scientific and technical units, offering a suitable environment to coordinate the research activities focused on the Nervous System. From the scientific point of view, the IC is organized in Departments that include several Research Groups. 1. Department of molecular, cellular and neuro biology 2. Department of functional and systems neurobiology 3. Department of translational Neuroscience Annual gross salary for the staff salaries and most of the building's operating expenses are borne by the central institution. Annual salary calculated as 3,349,498,75 Euros in 2007 and it is increased to 3,640,472,47 Euros in 2008. The scientific activity of the institute is coordinated with that of national and foreign centers, and it materializes in joint publications. Half of these collaborations take place with European centers and about one third with institutions in USA and Canada. In USA and Cnada 32.4%, UE and Sulza 50.3%, Latinamerica 11.2%, Japan 6%. Deparment wise Researches: On-going Researches in the department of molecular, cellular and neuro biology: 1. Protein nanomechanics in the nervous system; 2.
