Within the Department of Neurology, our research scientists are focused on understanding, treating and preventing neurological disorders. We seek to accomplish this through a wide range of research activities, including through clinical trials to understand new potential treatments and through basic scientific research focused on systems, cellular and molecular neuroscience approaches.
