Dr Justin Deniset (University of Calgary)
Nine laboratories within the Department of Physiology use cutting edge research techniques to understand the structure and function of the nervous system.
Research within this group is broad and includes study of the neuromuscular junction, central neural circuits controlling neuroendocrine and motor function as well as motivated behaviour. The specific research interest of individual laboratories can be found here.
Students have the opportunity to complete neuroscience MSc and PhD projects supervised by CMN group members. A list of currently available PhD projects can be found here.
Physiology not only taught me lifelong skills which I can apply to daily situations, it has also given me many new and interesting ideas in writing novels.
