The goal of Neuroscience is to understand the role of the nervous system in regulating physiological processes. This rapidly developing field has a broad domain that ranges from the cellular and molecular control of brain cells to the regulation of responses in whole organisms. Tulane Neuroscience is interdisciplinary, with researchers from a range of fields (Psychology, Biology, Anatomy, Physiology, Pharmacology, Biomedical Engineering, and Chemical Engineering). Neuroscience has a strong tradition at Tulane both as an area of study and research and with its doctoral, masters, and undergraduate programs comprised of faculty on the uptown and downtown campuses and the primate center.
