Colvin, Robert

Zinc and Calcium transport in neurons; mechanisms of neural degeneration in Alzheimer's disease and stroke; receptor-ligand interactions.

DiCaprio, Ralph

Functional and integrative properties of nonspiking neurons involved in the control of motor behavior.

Duerr, Janet

Examining the development and function of the nervous system using the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans.

Holmes, William

Mathematical and computational models of individual neurons of the hippocampus to understand how computation and synaptic modification occur in these cells.

Hooper, Scott

We study how animals generate rhythmic motor patterns such as walking, swimming, and flying at all levels from individual neurons to neural networks to muscle response to movement.

Daewoo, Lee

The molecular and cellular basis of neuronal communication in the central nervous system.

Pawluski, Jodi

How maternal adversity and early life stress affects neurobehavioural outcomes in the mother and offspring.

Peterson, Ellengene

Structural and biomechanical analyses of the vestibular system of the inner ear to understand how it encodes natural head movements and sends that information to the central nervous system.

Rowe, Mike

Quantification of the vestibular signals that are generated during natural behavior and how information about natural head movement is encoded in neural signals.

Charlier, Thierry

Investigating factors responsible for the determination of cell phenotypes and molecular pathways linked to reproductive and aggressive behaviors.
