Neuroscience Facilities and Equipment

The Departments of Biology and Psychology contain laboratory facilities for scanning and transmission electron microscopes, tissue culture, analytical neurochemistry, molecular biology, neuroanatomical research, intracellular and extracellular single neuron recording, voltage and patch clamping, eye movement tracking, evoked potential recording, and tactile psychophysics. Many experiments are controlled by laboratory computers, which are networked with our statistics laboratory and the rest of the campus. Both departments share a 1000 square foot vivarium that contains species ranging from insects to rats.

The Departments of Biology and Psychology are located in the new Science Center.
