Systems Neuroscience Research

Systems neuroscience is one of the major foci of the Neuroscience Program at Emory with over 40 faculty working in this area. Research spans the range of motor, sensory, behavioral, and cognitive neuroscience using a wide variety of techniques that encompass in vitro and in vivo electrophysiology, functional brain imaging, anatomy, and molecular techniques.

Areas of interest include neural substrates of learning and memory, cognition and attention, decision-making and reward, cross-modal interactions between sensory systems, mechanisms of vestibular and visual integration into control of eye movements, anatomy and physiology of the basal ganglia, physiology of oculomotor behavior, and central regulation of autonomic functions.
