Neuroscience and Behavior is a multidisciplinary program which applies the perspectives and techniques of both biology and psychology to the study of the brain and behavior.

Neuroscientists are interested in how the interactions of brain, body, and environment contribute to animal (including human) behavior. They study the structure and function of the nervous system, the development and evolution of neural and behavioral systems, and interactions among behavior, environment, physiology, and heredity.

This program is ideal for those students with interests in the biological and psychological sciences. A concentration in Neuroscience and Behavior can prepare students for graduate study in biology, psychology, or the neurosciences.

The Neuroscience and Behavior Program will celebrate its 50-year anniversary in 2021–22. Stay tuned for news about the commemorations.
