Neurophysiology Research

Master
Content

Neurophysiologists in the Department of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics decipher molecular pathways that underlie perception and cognition. Using optical and magnetic resonance imaging, electrophysiology and genetics, our scientists analyze sensory encoding, learning and memory, and disorders of the mammalian nervous system.
