Neuroscience & Neurotechnology

Recent advances have transformed neuroscience research. For example, several investigators study the genetic, anatomical, physiological, and immunological bases of neurodevelopmental, neurodegenerative, environmental, and traumatic disorders. Furthermore, the recent realization that activity-dependent plasticity occurs continually throughout the CNS and throughout life, and that new technology can support complex real-time adaptive interactions with the CNS to induce and guide this plasticity, enables others to develop powerful new research tools and therapeutic methods that can restore useful function to people disabled by injury or disease.

Associated Researchers

  • Bruce J. Herron

    Bruce J. Herron, Ph.D.

    • Mammalian Genomics

    We utilize an array of mammalian genomic tools to discover genetic modifiers that influence multifactorial diseases. These susceptibility loci are targets for diagnosis and treatment of similar disorders in humans.

  • David A. Lawrence

    David A. Lawrence, Ph.D.

    • Neuroimmunology and Immunotoxicology

    We study the immunological aspect of the system biology effects from genetic susceptibilities and environmental stress defined as the exposome on autoimmune diseases, immune deficiencies, and neurodegenerative and neurobehavioral illnesses.

  • Abigail Snyder-Keller, Ph.D.

    Abigail Snyder-Keller, Ph.D.

    • Director of the Histopathology Core

    We specialize in neuroanatomical techniques and brain connectivity. Our current focus is the anatomical basis of developmental disorders such as autism and epilepsy.
