Neuroscience at City College covers a range from molecular genetics (Li, Venkatesh) to ion channels (Josephson) to brain slices (Bikson) to molecular approaches to psychiatric diseases (Friedman, Battaglia) to systems neuroscience. In systems neuroscience, a growing group of faculty in 4 departments are forming an intellectual community using the methods of brain imaging, single-unit electrophysiology, high-density EEG recording, neuroanatomical techniques and psychophysics. The problems addressed include cortical organization and development (Levitt), development of the visual (Levitt) and auditory (Rodriguez-Contreras) systems, attention (Foxe, Molholm), sensorimotor integration (Ghilardi, Edelman), multisensory integration (Molholm, Parra, Foxe, Ro), and learning (Horvitz).
