Research Topics

  • Cellular and molecular mechanisms of learning and memory
  • Neurobiology of behavior
  • Excitable membranes/ion channels
  • Neurobiology of nicotine abuse and addiction
  • Molecular bases of signal transduction
  • Computational models of neuronal excitability

Dr. Farley studies the cellular and molecular bases of behavioral and neural plasticity, particularly those which involve changes in the biophysical properties of excitable membranes.
