Graduate Program in Neuroscience

Emeritus Faculty

Michael Beecher  | Auditory communication in birds.

Eliot Brenowitz  | Neural basis of biologically relevant behavior in animals and the cellular and molecular mechanisms of plasticity in adult brains.

Steven Buck  | Focuses on human color vision and linking perceptual visual experience and the underlying neural/genetic substrate.

Howard Chizeck  | Biorobotics, telerobotics and neural engineering.
