Faculty Member Brief Research Description
Sara Aton The effects of sensory experience and sleep on neural circuits, mechanisms underlying nervous system plasticity and memory formation.  
Tim Bruns We develop interfaces with the peripheral nervous system to examine systems-level neurophysiology and to restore function.  
Soo-Eun Chang Multimodal neuroimaging, neurodevelopmental disorders, stuttering, speech, brain development  
Bo Duan Genetic dissection of neural circuits that underlie a variety of somatosensory modalities, such as temperature, touch, pain and itch.  
Allen Hsu The genetic, dietary, environmental, and pharmacological factors that influence the rate of aging and longevity using C. elegans as a model organism.   
Dan Leventhal Systems-level basal ganglia physiology, pathophyisology of Movement Disorders, especially Parkinson's and dystonia, therapeutic mechanisms of pharmacotherapy and DBS.  
Malcolm Low Physiological and behavioral effects of neuropeptides and dopamine on energy homeostasis, reward, stress, drug sensitivity, and pituitary function   
Geoff Murphy The neurobiology of complex behaviors  
Susan Shore The cochlear nucleus is an integrating center for auditory and non-auditory information. We have demonstrated that somatosensory and motor neurons send synaptic terminals into the cochlear nucleus and when electrically stimulated, cause synaptic plasticity that is spike-timing dependent. After deafness, there is an increased number of glutamatergic somatosensory terminals in the cochlear nucleus that cause increased excitability of these neurons and may be one underlying cause of phantom sound perception or 'tinnitus'.  
William Stacey Our lab uses computational and neurophysiological tools to design devices to control seizures.  
Michael Sutton Our group studies the molecular mechanisms that control the development, maintenance and plasticity of synaptic connections in the mammalian hippocampus.   
Michael Wang We study molecular causes of stroke in humans and consequences of stroke on regulation of daily rhythms  
Kwoon Wong The Wong lab uses electrophysiological, behavioral and anatomical techniques to study retinal cells and circuits that regulate the non-image-forming visual system.  
Shawn Xu We study some of the fundamental questions in neuroscience and physiology: 1) Sensory transduction and behavior. 2) Neural circuits and synaptic mechanisms underlying behavior and drug addiction. 3) Sensory and genetic modulation of aging and longevity
