Neuroscience

The Neuroscience Subprogram (NS) examines the organization and function of the nervous system at all levels, from molecular, cellular, systems and behavioral perspectives. Areas of research include molecular genetics of development, neurotransmitters and signal transduction, learning, neuroethology, neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of sensory and motor systems, oculomotor control, neuroendocrine systems, and neurobiology of brain disorders. Faculty include members of the staff of the Institute for Basic Research in Developmental Disabilities.

The NS subprogram is offered by the CUNY Neuroscience Collaborative in conjunction with the Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience training area for the Ph.D. in Psychology. Doctoral students admitted into the NS subprogram in Biology are part of this Collaborative and will receive training across traditional program boundaries, preparing them for the increasingly interdisciplinary research taking place in neuroscience today.
