Regional Center for Neurosensory Disorders


The Regional Center for Neurosensory Disorders is comprised of internationally-recognized faculty members who maintain active research programs across multidisciplinary interests. Our researchers publish their findings in peer-reviewed journals across a broad spectrum of biomedical and life sciences.

We have included a list of relevant references organized by publication year and, thereafter, alphabetically by first author. Where available, we have also included a link to the abstract that is publically available on PubMed Central, an online digital archive serviced by the U. S. National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.
