Areas of Research - From Basic to Clinical

From investigating single molecules to probing human behavior, research in neuroscience spans an impressively diverse array of questions and techniques.

Since its inception, the field has attracted multidisciplinary approaches to decipher how we develop finely tuned nervous systems that allow us to perceive and interact with our surroundings and learn from and remember our experiences. Increasingly, these insights also inform translational research on a wide variety of neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer’s Disease, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, addiction, mood disorders, and autism spectrum disorders.

Our researchers embrace the multidisciplinary nature of neuroscience. The Neuroscience Institute will play a unifying role to enhance communication and collaboration among clinical, translational, and basic neuroscientists that reside in multiple campuses, institutes, departments, and centers throughout the University and will promote cutting-edge research across major areas within the field.
