Neurobiology

Studies in neurobiology in the Division of Biological Sciences share a common interest in the early development and later function of the nervous system with an emphasis on the neural control of behavior. This central theme is approached from diverse perspectives, including sensory physiology, sensory-motor integration and regeneration, neuroethology, developmental neurobiology, molecular neurobiology, and neurogenetics. Areas of interest include the neural basis of communication, neuroendocrine control of sexual differentiation and behavior, and neural pathways that control movement.

Dr. Kate Hertweck

“My graduate career at MU provided access to the resources necessary for me to experience a breadth of experimental and theoretical approaches. Interactions with a variety of scientists from different departments and topic areas allowed me to embrace cutting-edge research, and equipped me well to land my dream postdoc at an evolutionary biology synthesis center.”
