Neurobiology and Behavior is an exciting intellectual environment that optimizes our research and teaching missions.
Fundamental questions about how the brain and nervous system work in the expression of behavior are explored. These areas include learning and memory, sensory and integrative neuroscience (at molecular, genetic, synaptic and systems levels), neuronal development, neurocomputation, and the neurobiology of substance abuse.
