Research Areas

The scientific interests of the Neuroscience Track faculty at Yale represent the full range of the broad and rapidly growing field of neuroscience. Leaders in areas ranging from the genetic and structural analysis of single-membrane channels to the functional characterization of the neocortex are represented in a diverse group of outstanding scientists. In many research areas groups of faculty with different backgrounds apply complementary technologies to similar problems. The long and productive history of multidisciplinary collaboration between basic and applied sciences has also made Yale a leader in clinically relevant neuroscience. The neuroscience faculty members command more than half the university’s biomedical research budget and occupy more than 60,000 square feet of well-equipped laboratory space.
