Resource:Georgetown, Neuroscience

Name: Resource:Georgetown, Neuroscience
Description: Faculty of the Department of Neuroscience participate in the teaching of courses in the Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience and the School of Medicine. A Ph.D. in Neuroscience is offered through the Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience.

Support for graduate training is offered through the Department, the research grants of individual faculty, as well as through three NIH training grants directed by Neuroscience faculty.

  • Training in Recovery of Function after CNS Injury. Program Director: Barbara S. Bregman, Ph.D.
  • Training Program in Drug Abuse. Program Director: Barbara S. Bayer, Ph.D.
  • Training in Neural Injury and Plasticity. Program Director: Jean R. Wrathall, Ph.D.

Scientists in the Department of Neuroscience participate in a wide array of research activities with a focus on understanding both the normal and injured nervous system. The theme of neuroplasticity characterizes much of the research in the Department. We study neuroplasticity during normal development and in the adult in response to activity (e.g., learning) or drugs.

Our research is also focused on studying the plasticity that ensues after traumatic (such as spinal cord injury) or ischemic damage to the nervous system and over the course of developmental or neurodegenerative diseases (such as Specific Language Impairment, autism, or Parkinson's and Alzheimer's Diseases). The specific research interests of each of the principal investigators falls under four broad subheadings:

  • CNS disorders ( Faden, Mocchetti, Rebeck, Riesenhuber,Ullman)
  • Cognitive/Computational (Riesenhuber, Ullman)
  • Development, Regeneration and recovery of function after injury (Bregman, Faden, Kromer, Ullman, Wrathall)
  • Neuroimmunology and Drugs of Abuse (Bayer, Faden, Kromer, Mocchetti)
Under this common theme, a variety of diverse techniques and models are employed by the faculty. They range from molecular studies of gene function to studies on humans using Event-Related Potentials (ERPs) and functional MRI. Experimental models include cell culture systems, rodent genetic and experimental models of nervous system injury and disorders, as well as the use of computer simulations to understand higher cortical processing.
