The Institute of Neuroscience consists of laboratories with interests in the nervous system, brought together from the departments of Biology, Psychology, and Human Physiology.

The research interests of our faculty, students and postdoctoral associates generally fall into four overlapping affinity groups: developmental biology, cellular neuroscience, systems neuroscience and, cognitive neuroscience. These affinity groups focus on issues of mutual interest, both through formal activities that include weekly journal clubs, regularly scheduled group meetings, seminars, lectures and other special events, and by promoting frequent informal interactions among colleagues.

Graduate training in neuroscience at the Institute of Oregon emphasizes original research leading to the Ph.D. degree. Doctoral students are trained in all aspects of research, from experimental design to publication, while exposing students to a range of ideas and techniques needed to pursue successful research careers. We offer two formal training programs, one in cellular and developmental biology, the other in cognitive and systems neuroscience.
