The Center has entered into memoranda of understanding with other universities and institutions that ensure ongoing networking and collaborations with labs from across the United States and around the world. These relationships foster the development of joint research projects, collaboration on areas and issues of mutual intellectual and academic interest, and provide for mutual sharing of resources.

The MOUs also provide opportunities for graduate students in Gallaudet's Ph.D. in Educational Neuroscience program to receive direct training in cognitive neuroscience during their required summer laboratory rotations.
