Neuroscience research seeks to expand knowledge of the nervous system in all of its normal complexity and in the numerous disorders that occur when the nervous system is dysfunctional. The field of neuroscience research stretches from basic research on the fundamental processes involved in neural transmission to the complex interplay of the activity of brain centers that create consciousness itself. Neuroscience research also seeks to understand the genetic, epigenetic, environmental, developmental, cellular and biochemical bases of disorders of the nervous system. Students that complete the Neuroscience (NSCI) concentration of the Biomedical Science Graduate Program will have a broad knowledge base in neuroscience and strong understanding of effective approaches to investigate the normal and disordered nervous system. Graduates from the Neuroscience concentration will obtain competitive positions in academic, industrial, or governmental environments and agencies involved in neuroscience related research.

"I joined the Biomedical Sciences department as a Ph.D. student in fall 2021, and lab rotations exposed me to the various research opportunities at ETSU leading to my interest in neuroscience research. I am currently learning about neurophysiological techniques of EEG and event related potentials. I enjoy working in a collaborative environment in Dr. Digavalli’s lab and teaching what I learn to summer students in the lab."
