Neuroscience is the collective scientific effort to understand the brain. It is an interdisciplinary science collaborating with fields such as chemistry, engineering, and psychology. The Department of Neuroscience at the University of Minnesota Medical School is committed to providing excellence in research, education, and public service.
Congratulations to Dr. David Redish on the 5-year renewal of his R01 entitled, "Relating episodic memory and episodic future thinking in hippocampus." More on Dr. Redish here.
Dr. Newman and graduate trainee, Kyle Biesecker, have just published a paper in the Journal of Neuroscience titled, "Glial Cell Calcium Signlaing Mediates Capillary Regulation of Blood Flow in the Retina."
