Mark Baxter studies the neurobiology of cognitive function, with particular focus on how impaired cognition in different disease states is related to abnormalities in defined neural systems. Current areas of investigation include the long-term effects of exposure to general anesthesia, the relationship between synaptic health and cognitive function in aging, and the development of new models of Alzheimer's disease pathogenesis. He is Professor of Neuroscience and Director of the Lipschultz Center for Cognitive Neuroscience at Mount Sinai.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
