The Neuroscience subprogram in Biology examines the organization and function of the nervous system at all levels, from molecular, cellular, systems and behavioral perspectives. Areas of research include molecular genetics of development, neurotransmitters and signal transduction, learning, neuroethology, neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of sensory and motor systems, oculomotor control, neuroendocrine systems, and neurobiology of brain disorders. Faculty include members of the staff of the Institute for Basic Research in Developmental Disabilities.
Fall 2013 ADMISSIONS: The Neuroscience subprogram (NS) in Biology and the Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience (BCN) training area in Psychology have recently formed the CUNY Neuroscience Collaborative. Doctoral training through this Collaborative will commence in Fall 2013. Doctoral students admitted into this Collaborative will receive training across traditional PhD Program boundaries, preparing them for the increasingly interdisciplinary research taking place in neuroscience today. Students can apply either through the Biology PhD Program (NS) or the Psychology PhD Program (BCN).
