Collaborating with colleagues throughout the university, our faculty have researched brain imaging, health services interventions and epidemiological risk factors and have conducted experimental investigations and longitudinal cohort studies. Faculty in our department have also conducted Phase II, III and IV Food and Drug Administration studies.
Our school’s shared core instrumentation and transgenic animal facilities support research by UB faculty and investigators at our affiliated institutions. These facilities not only house state-of-the-art equipment but in many cases also provide data analysis, training and grant writing consultation.
In this custom-designed psychophysiology lab, our faculty, residents and fellows study the mechanisms by which the mind affects the body in psychosomatic illness by measuring heart rate and heart rate variability under lab stress conditions.
