Making the connections

Our neuroscience research team is working on a variety of projects that make important links between the nervous system and behavior, health and sensory function. Our projects include:

  • retinal neurobiology and ion channel function in synaptic communication
  • hormones and behaviour 

  • visual function in health and disease

  • mechanisms of synaptic transmission and plasticity 

  • regulation of neurotransmitter release
  • sensory transduction and information encoding by mechanoreceptors and chemoreceptors
  • synaptic modulation of sensory processes
  • neural network structure and dynamics
  • organization of the developing olfactory system
  • neural control of the heart
