Research Core: Comparative Neurobiology

This core addresses the scientific study of the nervous system and related components. Such studies span the structure, function, development, genetics, biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology, informatics, and pathology of the nervous system.

Specific areas of research include:

  • Developmental neurobiology
  • Nervous system plasticity
  • Regenerative neurobiology
  • Nociception
  • Nervous system pathobiology
  • Stem cell therapy
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Neurodegenerative diseases
  • Functional outcome measures
