Dr. Woolf studies neuronal plasticity, its mechanistic basis, how it contributes to the normal and abnormal functions of the nervous system, and how it can be a target for therapy.  The major focus of this work is on neural plasticity in relation to pain, regeneration, neurodegenerative disorders and developmental neurobiology.
