Dominick P. Purpura Department of Neuroscience

Core/Shared Facilities

     The Dominick P. Purpura Department of Neuroscience maintains two research facilities that are available, at minimal charge, for use by all department members, as well as by members of the Rose F. Kennedy Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center. Both cores provide instruction in the use of the facilities, assistance with the actual experiments and guidance in experimental design.

     One facility is the Animal Behavior Core, which has the equipment required for the quantitative assessment of rodent behavior in tests of cognition, sensorimotor performance, and affective function.

     The other facility is the Cellular and Molecular Imaging Core, which provides access to a wide range of imaging techniques, including confocal microscopy, two-photon laser microscopy, electron microscopy and laser capture, as well as expertise in image processing and presentation.

     To further compliment in-house lab equipment, the Kennedy Center Cellular and Molecular Shared Equipment Facility on the third floor, provides additional common experiment equipment (including western blot and gel scanners, scintillation counter, film developer and various shakers and centrifuges).
