The Program in Neuroscience is an academic program of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS) at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Neuroscience investigators focus on: the neural, molecular, and genetic mechanisms that underlie nervous system development, learning and memory, addiction, glial responses to neuronal injury, and circadian rhythmicity; mechanisms of synaptic neurotransmitter release, analysis of how neurotransmitter receptors and membrane channels operate, and how drugs act on these processes to modify cellular function and behavior; magnetic resonance imaging technology to study and map changes in the brain associated with physiological stimuli as well as drugs of abuse; and disorders of the central nervous system, with special emphasis on neurodegenerative disorders, autism spectrum disorders, mental retardation and other developmental disabilities. This collection showcases publications and presentations authored by students in the Neuroscience program.
