The Neuroscience Group is comprised of faculty members whose research areas include:
- Learning and memory
- Cellular mechanisms of synaptic plasticity
- Functional recovery from stroke
- Computational neuroscience
- Neural control of respiration
- Cellular mechanisms of stress and addiction
The group has been funded since 2000 receiving more than $17 million for a Center for Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) on Neural Mechanisms of Adaptive Behavior.
