The Department of Neurobiology aims to further our understanding of the brain and its role in health and disease through research and education. Research topics include how neural circuits create behavior, the cellular and molecular mechanisms that make brain cells function and adapt, and the mechanisms of brain development. The department is the administrative home for the interdepartmental Graduate Training Program in Neurobiology and works closely with the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences (DIBS), other basic science departments, and relevant clinical departments.
