The Neuroscience Institute draws upon expertise in many disciplines across Georgia State. “Core” faculty have their primary appointments in the Neuroscience Institute and are located together in the Institute’s offices and labs in the Petit Science Center. “Associate” and “Affiliate” faculty have their primary appointments in other departments and are located across the GSU campus. They participate in Institute activities and contribute in a variety of ways to the research and educational activities of the Institute as well as to neuroscience-related activities in their home departments. Associate faculty are also part of the graduate faculty for the Neuroscience doctoral program, and like Core faculty, can serve as supervisors for graduate students in that program. 

Neuroscience staff are located in the Institute’s departmental offices on the 8th floor of the Petit Science Center. They provide administrative and technical support for Institute faculty and students.
