Vladimir Parpura, M.D., Ph.D., professor in the Department of Neurobiology has been selected as a fellow of the American Physiological Society.
This research offers fundamental insights about sensory thalamic subnetworks and will enable powerful new strategies to probe behavioral and perceptual functions of these distinct circuits.

This work is a step forward in understanding early molecular changes that influence the development of addiction, and may have application to the role of similar gene programs that mediate other types of behavior, memory formation or neuropsychiatric disorders.

A mouse model and previous studies suggest that genetic intervention in SHANK3-related ASD may be most effective earlier in development.
Two UAB neuroscientists have been included in a listing of 100 of the most inspiring black scientists in the nation.
“Attending the World Congress on Undergraduate Research … was the highlight of my college career.” – Saakshi Thukral
UAB researchers have identified a non-coding RNA that appears to affect memory in the older brain.
A new discipline sits at the intersection of neuroscience and engineering, where lessons learned from circuits, networks and chips are combined with the latest findings on brain circuitry.
UAB neuroscientist Vladimir Parpura will begin a four-year term as a council member of the International Society for Neurochemistry.
These newborn neurons in the dentate gyrus become less excitable after three weeks, a crucial step for mature functioning.
A neuron model of Parkinson’s disease and Lewy body dementias shows defects that could suggest treatments to halt or reverse cognitive impairments before the neurons die.
The department currently has 14 primary faculty members complemented by a diverse secondary faculty.
