Facilities

Facilities for neuroscience research and instruction are excellent. The Allwine Hall Annex provides facilities for neuroscience research and instruction, with multiple animal room suites and research facilities and a 12-station laboratory space with facilities for both live animal research and demonstrations, and internet-connected computers for modeling and simulations. In Allwine Hall itself, additional animal space is available for specialized animals (aquatic, invertebrate, and nonhuman primate). Multiple teaching laboratories are also available, including some that are equipped for modern molecular work (AH 408, 524). Specialized methods-oriented laboratories and instrumentation are available for two of the most common methods in neuroscience (neuroendocrinology and histology) with modern equipment and established protocols. Additional shared instrumentation available to support activities in the major include a new DNA sequencer, gamma and scintillation counters, ELISA plate readers, and a wide variety of microscopy and digital imaging equipment.
