Basic science research in the Department of Neurology is actively ongoing and well-funded by extramural grants. The Institute for Cerebrovascular and Neuroregeneration Research (ICNR) currently consists of four separate yet integrated research laboratories within the Neurology department. The Institute employs various methods to study the long-term effects, short-term effects, remedies, and general outcomes of cerebral ischemia, dementias, and neurodegeneration. Additionally, neurology research collaborates effectively in the basic science arena with clinical laboratories within our department, and there's ongoing collaborative cognitive neuroscience research with the Center for Brain Health (CBH) directed by Dr. Elizabeth Disbrow. Our clinical research, including controlled clinical trials, is actively led by Dr. J. Dedrick Jordan and is ongoing from the clinical side.

Blood vessels

The human brain is an intricate network of neurons that not only controls our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors but also plays a vital role in maintaining our overall health. One fascinating aspect of the brain's influence on the body is its impact on blood vessels. In this article, we will delve into the secrets of neurons and explore how they interact with blood vessels to ensure optimal health.
