Welcome to the Department of Neurobiology
The mission of the Morehouse School of Medicine Department of Neurobiology is to advance and disseminate knowledge about the nervous system both through academic research, teaching and training. Our faculty use a broad range of behavioral, cellular and molecular techniques to conduct investigations into the causes and pathophysiology of stroke, epilepsy, sleep disorders, cataracts, depression and bipolar disorder.
In addition, they also study basic mechanisms of nerve cell communication, transmission and processing of light through the eye, circadian rhythm, basic brain morphology, gene expression and modulation of biological cascades.
Teaching is also a primary aim of the Department of Neurobiology. We currently run courses in neurobiology and brain function for graduate and medical students at MSM as well as undergraduates of Morehouse College.
