Neuroscience Research Group

Neuroscientists in the Department of Physiology bring a strong interdisciplinary scientific approach to the study of the nervous system. Our students, post-docs and faculty are using molecular, cell biological, anatomical, electrophysiological, behavioral, and optical techniques to understand how the brain develops, how neurons communicate with each other, how brain cells maintain ionic homeostasis, and how these vital processes are disturbed in diseases such as epilepsy, Down’s syndrome, Alzheimer’s, depression, schizophrenia, and neuromuscular diseases.
