Nervous System and Brain Disorders
Our researchers study the brain and nervous system to understand the role of sleep in cognition, the impact of trauma on the optic nerve, and the activity of the brain while regulating emotion. They also explore the workings of this system to better diagnose and treat such disorders as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, and ALS.
