About

Biological Sciences - Neuroscience and Physiology students at Illinois State University, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty comprising the Neuroscience and Physiology (NP) group emphasize an integrative approach to the study of these two important and related sub-disciplines.

Overview

Biological Sciences - Neuroscience and Physiology identifies the neural substrates of behavior, whereas Physiology investigates organismal functions. Research within Neuroscience and Physiology spans broad organization levels within Biology, from genes and molecules and cells to tissues, circuits and behaving animals. 

Learning outcomes

Illinois State University employ a variety of experimental approaches, including genetic, molecular, cellular, and whole-animal techniques such as microelectrode recordings, microscopy, optical imaging, EEG, mathematical modeling, and behavioral observations. Current research asks fundamental questions in molecular neuroethology, cellular, systems, and human neuroscience, and cellular and transport physiology.

We offer a comprehensive curriculum to graduate students interested in Neuroscience and Physiology. Sequences provide an exciting and challenging academic environment, by combining research excellence with a strong commitment to education, and are tightly integrated into laboratory research.

The Neuroscience and Physiology sequence is an option for students enrolled in the M.S. degree program.
