The neuroscientists in the Department of Biology use primarily electrophysiological approaches to study a wide range of functional questions in vertebrate and invertebrate nervous systems. A particular strength of the Neuroscience area in the department derives from the application of computational methods to the analysis of neural systems and the construction of detailed biophysical computer models of neurons and neural circuits.

Additionally, other faculty members are working on nervous system development.
