The interdisciplinary nature of the University of Idaho Neuroscience Graduate Program creates many collaborative research opportunities. You may have the chance to work with members of the faculty of 11 different departments and four colleges who are currently engaged in leading neuroscience research in such areas as:
- Neurobiology: Neurogenesis, the genetic basis of behavior and the development of the nervous system and sensory system.
- Cognitive Neuroscience: Visual effects such as optical illusions, and how the brain learns to work when it’s confronted with something new.
- Computational Neuroscience: Neural network models, early development of intelligence, and the use of genetic and evolutionary computing methods to understand the spinal cord and the spinal muscular system.
