The Division of Neurobiology conducts research on the nervous system and the sensory organs.
The research includes studies on function of ion channels in different types of cells, on how different neuronal systems, as hearing, vision and touch, are organised and how they funtion; and on the mechanisms underlying degenerative disease in the central nervous system.
The goal of our research is to find ways to prevent, diagnose, and cure disease in the nervous system and the sensory organs, by understanding the organisation and functional mechanisms of these systems.
The division is involved in medical and biomedical education programs, both at undergraduate and Master's level, and in education of PhD students and post-doctoral fellows.
