Welcome to Penn Neuroscience
Welcome to the Department of Neuroscience, located in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Our mission is to advance understanding of the nervous system through basic and translational research and to train the next generation of neuroscientists and physicians.
Our research interests are wide-ranging and include understanding the development of neurons and neural circuitry; exploring how neural circuits function; defining disease processes that compromise neural performance; and explaining the behavior of organisms from a molecular, cellular, and systems perspective. We address these issues in both vertebrate and invertebrate model systems using techniques drawn from every major biological discipline.
