Unlocking the Secrets of Neurodegenerative Disorders
Ask an oncologist what cancer is, and they could talk to you for hours, telling you about cell cycles, oncogenes, and all sorts of things,” says Stephen Lisberger, PhD, chair and George Barth Geller Distinguished Professor for Research in Neurobiology. “Ask a neurologist what Alzheimer’s is, and it's going to be a short conversation.”
Welcome Neurobiology's New Grad Students
The latest cohort of graduate students just completed Neurobiology Boot Camp and have already begun their classes and first lab rotations.

Team Dzirasa Finds Brain Network That Makes Mice Mingle
The difference between a social butterfly and a lone wolf is actually at least eight differences, according to new findings by a team of Duke brain researchers. By simultaneously spying on the electrical activity of several brain regions, the researchers found they could identify how social or solitary an individual mouse is.
Glickfeld pushing the limits of brain plasticity
Wisdom may come with age, but young people have the advantage when it comes to learning. Duke neurobiologist Lindsey Glickfeld, PhD, wants to know why. More to the point, she wants to know how. What are the mechanics in the brain and how do those mechanics change from childhood to adulthood?
Advancing Neuroscience: Probing New Questions, Tools, and Promise in Brain Science
Duke neuroscientists discuss the challenges and technological achievements that help us better understand our complex brain.
