Behavioral Neuroscience

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 Neuroscience

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 Neuroscience

Comparative Clinical Neurosciences is based around the clinical management of companion animals with neurological and somatosensory diseases. Faculty with diverse backgrounds work together to manage and treat these conditions in pets using and developing cutting edge diagnostic and treatment platforms. The discoveries made are used in a comparative paradigm to inform the management of the same conditions in humans.


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.
