Welcome to Neurosciences
Neuroscience research and education at NC State is rapidly growing. We believe that fundamental scientific insights occur when scientists are allowed to work in a flexible, collaborative, and intellectually adventurous atmosphere that allows for convergence and integration across multiple disciplines.
Behavioral neuroscientists at NC State employ a wide range of species and experimental approaches to elucidate the mechanisms that underlie and modulate behavior.
Cellular and Molecular neuroscientists at NC State study mechanisms that allow the nervous system to function using a multitude of approaches in a wide range of species. Investigators range from molecular geneticists, to cell biologists and biochemists, to electrophysiologists that study the development, function, and aging of the nervous system.
Comparative Clinical Neurosciences is based around the clinical management of companion animals with neurological and somatosensory diseases.
Multiple laboratories at NC State work at the intersection between engineering and neuroscience. These include developing neural-machine interfaces, bionics, investigations underlying mechanisms in human neuromuscular control, and biomedical imaging.
Neuroscience graduate students at NC State are part of the university-wide Comparative Biomedical Sciences graduate program. Students interested in graduate studies are urged to contact individual faculty members of interest prior to graduate program application.
