Faculty and Staff

Faculty in our department are taking advantage of new approaches in their integrative studies that range from molecular to systems biology and behavior. Our research focuses on neuroscience, and particularly on developmental neuroscience.

Faculty are investigating:

  • Ontogenetic events (e.g., stem cell proliferation, neuronal migration, and synaptogenesis)
  • Intracellular signaling (e.g., calcium regulation)
  • Extracellular communication (mediated by growth factors and extracellular glycoproteins)
  • Sensory and motor systems (e.g., somatosensory cortex, cingulate cortex, and cerebellum)
