Research interests of faculty in the Neuroscience graduate program include:

  • information processing in visual, auditory, and vestibular systems
  • neural mechanisms mediating higher nervous system functions, including perception, learning, memory, attention and decision making
  • development and regeneration in the central and peripheral nervous system
  • development of new technologies to read and stimulate neural activity, including functional magnetic neuroimaging, transcranial magnetic stimulation, and two-photon microscopy
