Faculty Member Brief Research Description
Wayne Aldridge neuronal mechanisms of reward and movement behavior in the basal ganglia  
Arun Anantharam We study the molecular mechanisms of hormone trafficking, signaling, and secretion at the sympatho-adrenal synapse. Our goals are to understand these processes in the context of stress and stress transduction.  
Sara Aton The effects of sensory experience and sleep on neural circuits, mechanisms underlying nervous system plasticity and memory formation.  
Jill B. Becker Sex differences in brain motivational systems and how that impacts drug abuse and brain function and dysfunction. Mechanisms mediating the rapid effects of steroid hormones in the brain.  
Asim Beg Molecular mechanisms underlying circuit assembly and synaptic function.  
Kent Berridge Affective Neuroscience: Reward wanting, liking, learning and addiction  
Victoria Booth Computational neuroscience focuses on constructing and analyzing biophysical models of neurons and neuronal networks to quantitatively probe experimental hypotheses and provide experimentally-testable predictions.   
Robert Bradley Investigations of brainstem circuits processing gustatory information.  
Dawen Cai From cells to network tracing neural circuit formation in the mouse brain  
Sally A. Camper, Ph.D. bioinformatics, cancer, developmental biology, gene expression, genetics of disease, hearing research, hormone action, neuroscience, organogenesis reproductive biology, signaling, skeletal development, stem cell research  
Soo-Eun Chang Multimodal neuroimaging, neurodevelopmental disorders, stuttering, speech, brain development  
Josie Clowney Developmental perspectives on neural circuit structure and function in Drosophila  
Ivo Dinov Dr. Dinov is Director of the Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR), the Integrative Biostatistics and Informatics Core, University of Michigan Nutrition Obesity Research Center (MNORC), and the Biostatistics and Data Management Core, University of Michigan Udall Center for Excellence in Parkinson's Disease. He also Co-Directs the Center for Complexity and Self-management of Chronic Disease (CSCD Center), and the multi-institutional Probability Distributome Project.   
Bo Duan Genetic dissection of neural circuits that underlie a variety of somatosensory modalities, such as temperature, touch, pain and itch.  
Mara Duncan The molecular mechanisms of membrane traffic, and how it promotes cell survival during stresses including starvation.  
Carol Elias Our studies are focused on deciphering the mechanisms by which metabolic imbalance disrupts the reproductive neuroendocrine axis.   
Eva Feldman I am interested in understanding the pathogenic mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration in the central and peripheral nervous systems and identifying effective therapies.  
Carrie Ferrario We aim to understand the neural mechanisms underling drug addiction and obesity in order to develop prevention and treatment strategies.  
David Fink Our research is directed at the development of gene transfer therapies for diseases of the nervous system. We use recombinant replication-defective vectors created by modification of herpes simplex virus to deliver and express transgenes in central and peripheral nervous system in models of pain, peripheral neuropathy and spinal cord injury.  
Shelly Flagel Interested in understanding the behavioral and neurobiological processes that contribute to individual differences in stimulus-reward learning and addiction liability.
