Welcome to the Oklahoma Center for Neuroscience

The Oklahoma Center for Neuroscience (OCNS) is located on the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center campus, we are comprised of over 100 faculty from the OU College of Medicine and other area-affiliated institutions. The primary mission of the Center is to foster and conduct science that advances the understanding of brain function and diseases that affect the nervous system. A major role of the Center is to mentor the development of neuroscientists and clinician-neuroscientists through fundamental and translational research.  Our interdisciplinary Neuroscience Graduate Program (Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. in Neuroscience) attracts outstanding students from around the world.  The center also organizes a seminar program hosting renowned neuroscientists. The flagship event for OCNS is the Neuroscience Symposium which is a forum for the showcasing of neuroscience investigation and discovery.  Another important activity of the center is  community outreach through programs such as our monthly NeuroNight program and annual Mini Graduate School.  Please enjoy the website!
