Biography

Teaching

Dr. Mosconi is a classically trained anatomist with expertise in both Human Gross Anatomy and Neuroanatomy. He has taught extensively in Neuroscience and Anatomy courses and has developed a casual, personable style of student interaction. His goal is not to disseminate bland facts, rather to teach students how to learn the material. He wants students to develop an orderly way of thinking to make educated deductions and rational conclusions. Students should let their innate curiosity free and seek more than the bare minimum. In most cases, they will have only one opportunity to see the inner workings of the human body and brain – make the most of that chance!

Research

Dr. Mosconi's research has involved examinations of different aspects of the somatosensory system, from development, to maintenance in maturity, to recovery and regeneration after injury. The primary system with which he has analyzed these issues has been the facial innervation of the rodent, particularly the common lab rat and normal, mutant, and transgenic mice, as well as the rat and mouse sciatic nerve and spinal cord. With his direct access to cadaveric material in the Gross lab, he has reported on fascinating pathological cases. He has been fortunate to have had excellent student collaboration on many of these projects.
