The Center for Translational Neuroscience (CTN) is a division of the Department of Neurobiology & Developmental Sciences in the College of Medicine, and has over a dozen investigators. 

The CTN is also the research arm of the Jackson T. Stephens Spine & Neuroscience Institute.

Examples of ongoing research at the CTN are described in more detail in the Research pages for each lab. 

The environment of the CTN is highlighted by a Career Development Program that includes an a) External Advisory Committee, b) Internal Mentor Program, c) Visiting Mentor Program, d) Distinguished Speaker Series, e) Internal and External Grant Application Reviews, f) Biostatistics and Experimental Design Program, g) Grant Writing Workshops, and h) Mock Peer Review Training Program. 

The resources of the CTN include several Cores, an a) Administrative Core with direct accounting and purchasing capacity, b) Electrophysiology Core facility with Evoked Potential, Psychomotor Vigilance Task (PVT), Operant Test Battery (OTB), Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS, for measuring relative frontal lobe blood flow), and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) capability, and c) Image Analysis Facility with light (2), fluorescence (2) and confocal (1) imaging capability with image analysis software (2).
