Neuroscience Research

The Department of Molecular Biology and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute have a goal to understand how the nervous system works together as one unit by studying the very complex interactions and underlying cellular connections. This ambitious goal primarily involves the understanding of neural coding and dynamics. Neural coding refers to the way that information is represented by the activity patterns of brain cells. Neural dynamics involves how neural circuits manipulate, modify, and store information in the process of controlling behavior and cognition. Department scientists use a variety of powerful technologies ranging from genetics and cell biology of model organisms such as worms and flies to multi-photon imaging of neurons in action. Other technologies involve viral-assisted gene delivery of genetically encoded activity sensors and modulators as well as multi-electrode recording and imaging of neurons engaged in directing complex behaviors.
