Behavioral and Functional Neuroscience Laboratory

Overview of Services

 

 

 

As part of the Stanford Neurosciences Institute, BFNL provides a preclinical discovery platform for CNS target validation in preclinical in vivo and in vitro models. Our well validated neurobehavioral assessment tools in CNS disease models provide a unique platform for the screening and profiling of experimental therapeutics and genetic rodent models.

We are a team of dedicated professionals with years of experience between us in myriad disciplines. United by our common passion for neuroscience and interest in complex, whole-system effects, we aim to accelerate the progress in both fundamental and applied studies of nervous system function. PhD fellows lead multitalented research assistants in teams that focus on specific topics in neurobiology, and collaborate with academic laboratories, non-profit foundations, and biopharmaceutical companies worldwide to support the understanding of human CNS disorders and develop therapeutic interventions. Our overarching goal is to lead and enable translation of scientific discoveries into novel therapeutic approaches that improve the quality of life for patients with disorders of the brain and spinal cord. Our disease models focus includes: cognition and memory, pain, stroke, spinal cord injury, Alzheimer’s disease, Down syndrome, Huntington’s disease, ALS, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and Schizophrenia, as well as social interaction.
