Department of Medical Neurobiology, IMRIC

The department of medical neurobiology at the Hebrew University is home to about twenty active research groups. Our research addresses various topics which include sensory processing, signal transduction, mechanisms of development, motor control, learning and memory, addiction, neuronal disorders and cognitive function. This is accomplished using various experimental approaches, spanning multiple levels of analysis and a wide range of model organisms including humans, mice, fish, birds, flies, nematodes, and even brain organoids. Although our name has changed over the decades, our commitment to understand the physiological mechanisms that govern the function of the nervous system and processes that give rise to its development has not. You are invited to read more about us, our research, and the teaching that we are involved in.

Our department includes a variety of research groups, covering various systems and levels of analysis. Enter here for individual lab pages.
