Professor and Interim Co-ChairDepartment of Neurological Sciences
My primary teaching responsibilities include lectures in the VIC Neural Science Course on basic neurophysiology and synaptic mechanisms, and on motor system structure and function.
I have been the Chair of the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology since its creation in 1980. I am now interim Co-Chair (with Dr. Tandan) for the newly created Department of Neurological Sciences. I also am the Director of the COBRE Center for Neuroscience Excellence grant that supports two multi-user research facilities, the Cell/Molecular Biology Core and the Imaging/ Physiology Core.
