Research and Clinical Interests
Dr. Schwaber uses systems biology approaches in mammalian brain to study adaptive neuronal processes. Specifically his interests involve mechanisms by which hypertension arises in homeostatic cardiorespiratory regulatory circuits, by which the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal are produced and by which phase shifting of light causes the brain's master clock to reorganize circadian behavior.
