Neuroscience Research

Faculty investigators in the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology who specialize in neuroscience research focus on brain circuitry, function and disorders, including stroke, ALS, epileptogenesis, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, peripheral neural temporomandibular disorder, anxiety, alcoholism and fetal alcohol syndrome to the level of translational treatment, neuroprotection and neural repair. These neuroscientists take a holistic approach to exploring the range of neurological topics—from DNA manipulation, receptor functioning and synaptic remodeling to brain circuitry visualization. Multidiscipline studies include developmental neuroscience, neural stem cells, neuroimmunology, neuropathology and neuroimaging. Collectively the neuroscience studies by faculty in this department share an interest in neuroanatomical topics and advanced processes, including epigenetics, optogenetics, glutamate uncaging, single-cell and patch-clamp recording, fMRI, brain imaging sound perception, and computational neuroscience.
