Over the past decade, the application of molecular biological techniques to the study of the central nervous system has revolutionized our thinking about synaptic transmission, neuronal plasticity and neuronal integration, as well as the molecular basis of psychiatric illnesses.
The Molecular Biology Core emphasizes the application of biotechnologically advanced molecular techniques to study the expression, structure, function and localization of a variety of neural substrates in the brain. The CPN core provides training, consultation and technical assistance in molecular biological approaches that allow individual researchers to study various molecular endpoints, regulatory mechanisms, as well as the role of transcriptional and translational processes in regulating and controlling the expression of the various neural substrates of interest.
The Molecular Biology Core provides shared-access to the following amplification, visualization, detection and analysis systems:
The Molecular Biology Core serves as a central resource that enables, stimulates and facilitates the use of molecular biological approaches and further enhances the methodological diversity of CPN investigators as well as other departmental faculty.
