The Department of Neuroscience is part of Ohio State's multidisciplinary Neurological Institute. The department is closely aligned with the Neuroscience Graduate Program, which includes faculty from Neuroscience who work to advance our understanding of the brain and behavior. Our focus is on cross-disciplinary education and scientific study of nervous systems, including neurological and psychiatric conditions.
Top-Tier Research Facilities and Opportunities
We’re a top-ranked center for fundamental, translational and clinical research conducted by faculty, fellows and students. Unique research opportunities include a Neuroscience Center Core Program — made possible by a grant from the National Institute for Neurological Disorders and Stroke. This supports core facilities and services in areas such as mouse and zebrafish genetics, nerve injury, rodent behavior, neurophysiology, muscle physiology, xenografting and small animal imaging.
Department resources include access to more than 25 state-of-the-art medical center research facilities and services. These involve proteomics, microarray, nucleic acid, comparative pathology and mouse phenotyping, analytical cytometry and biostatistics.
Support for clinical and translational research is provided by the Center for Clinical and Translational Science, funded by a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Translational Science Award.
