Neuroscience is the scientific study of nervous systems. The field encompasses the anatomy, behavioral functions, biochemistry, development, evolution, genetics, pharmacology, and physiology of nervous systems as well as biologically inspired robotics and prosthetics, computational modeling, and mechanisms of neurological and psychiatric diseases. The Department of Neuroscience is devoted to education and research in this remarkably interdisciplinary and dynamic field of modern science. Research emphasizes cellular, developmental, molecular and systems neurobiology, neuroethology, and neurogenetics, targeting contemporary areas such as intra- and intercellular signaling, synaptic mechanisms, development of the central nervous system, information processing in sensory systems, insects as neurobiological and neuroethological models and vectors of disease, neurogenetics of developmental neurological disorders, evolution of neural systems, and biorobotics.
