The major research in this department is neurophysiology


The physiology program is an ideal vehicle for students looking to learn about brain or eye function/dysfunction or development.

Experimental approaches range from studies on whole animals and isolated tissues to studies of cellular and molecular events.

Scientific inquiry may include the complex interactions of systems in the whole individual, the orchestration of processes integrating organ and cell function, and/or integration of molecular events within individual cells.
