Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience

Image of brain model in Jacobs School Brain Museum.

This area of research studies the cellular processes of neurons and glia at a molecular level to seek an understanding of the fundamental mechanisms that underlie communication in the nervous system. This broad field employs a multidisciplinary approach to study nervous system development and function.
