Neuroscience

Students gain advanced knowledge of molecular biophysics of channels and receptors through motor control; neuroethology; retinal organization; development of visual systems; cortical organization; and cognitive functions. Students graduate with the qualitative and quantitative skills necessary for professional research and teaching regarding nerve cells and the ways they are organized to form nervous systems that mediate behavior.
