The Program in Neuroscience provides lab and research opportunities in each of the core dimensions of our field:
Labs & Resources
IU science research facilities include:
- Biocomplexity Institute
The Biocomplexity Institute focuses on research concerned with the complex structures and behaviors that arise from the interaction of biophysical entities' molecules, cells, organisms. It offers seminars, colloquia, the use of research software, and information about affiliated faculty and staff.Visit the Biocomplexity Institute
- Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics
Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics provides access to genome technologies and bioinformatic support. It houses the Genome Services Facility (GSF), offering consulting and services for the generation of sequencing libraries and next-generation sequencing. The GSF specializes in developing automated robotic workflows that greatly reduce the time and cost of high-throughput library construction.Visit the CGB
- Center for the Integrative Study of Animal Behavior
The Center for the Integrative Study of Animal Behavior administers an internationally-recognized academic program in Animal Behavior for both graduate and undergraduate students. The CISAB Animal Behavior Laboratory provides equipment, expert training, and essential services to researchers at an affordable cost. CISAB also sponsors invited speakers, workshops, an annual regional conference and other activities, bringing researchers together to share their ideas.Visit CISAB
- Cognitive Control Lab
The mission of the Cognitive Control Lab is to identify and characterize the neural mechanisms of goal directed behavior. To this end, we focus on the frontal lobes, and especially the medial prefrontal cortex. Our research involves a tight integration of computational neural modeling, functional MRI, and cognitive psychology.
- Imaging Research Facility
The Imaging Research Facility (IRF) uses multiple methods of neuro-imaging to conduct research, training, and education in the study of brain structure and function and how these relate to behavior. It serves an interactive and collaborative community of researchers from across the IUB campus and beyond.Visit the IRF
- Indiana Molecular Biology Institute
The PANLab seeks to understand how the brain processes sensory evidence, how that sensory evidence interacts with previous experiences, how that interaction contributes to decision making, and how those decisions lead to environmentally-appropriate actions.
The research program emphasizes the understanding of fundamental sensory operations and how they may differ across typical and atypical populations.
Research involves a combination of experimental methods and analysis techniques, including fuctional MRI, resting state and task-based functional connectivity, structural connectivity, psychophysics, self-report, daily diaries, TMS, and EEG.Visit the Perception and Neuroimaging PAN Lab
- NiMBLe Lab at Indiana University – Neuroscience of Mind and Behavior Lab
Our research incorporates behavioral, cognitive, and neuroimaging (fMRI) techniques to identify the mechanisms underlying stereotyping and prejudice and understand how these change over the lifespan.
- Perception and Neuroimaging PAN Lab
The Indiana Molecular Biology Institute provides space for 15 faculty research labs, three shared-use instrumentation facilities, and a lab for the study of ancient DNA.
It houses Institute Fellows from seven departments and programs on the Bloomington campus and the Department of Biology at Indiana University's Medical School on the Indianapolis campus.
- Psychology Research and Training Clinics
There are currently 3 clinical research and training clinics located in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Indiana University. They provide a range of psychotherapy, psychological assessment, and consultation services to both children and adults who reside in Bloomington and the surrounding areas, including provision of services for faculty, staff, and students at Indiana University.
- The Gill Center for Biomolecular Science
The Linda and Jack Gill Center for Biomolecular Science (GCBS) was established to advance the understanding of complex biological processes and to train next generation scientists in state-of-the-art biomolecular measurements, especially in the field of neuroscience.Visit The Gill Center
