One of the core strengths of UVa neuroscience is a collaborative environment with labs investigating the micro (ie intrinsic properties of ion channels) and macro aspects of nervous system function (ie circuit neurophysiology). Each level of analysis contributes critical information to our understanding of neural function, as well as pathological scenarios such as epilepsy, eating disorders and intellectual disability. An integrative question requires an integrative approach. As such, we tackle these problems using cutting edge genetic, biochemical, and electrophysiological techniques. The labs that are particularly interested in these questions include:
