About The Behavioral Neuroscience Program
The explosive growth of information and interests in the field of behavioral neuroscience frequently necessitates multidisciplinary study. Thus, students are encouraged to gain familiarity with anatomical, biochemical, molecular, and electrophysiological bases for a wide range of behaviors including sensation, motor control, reproduction, learning, memory, cognition, communication. Although the use of animals as subjects for basic research on learning/physiological issues is generally recognized, it should also be noted that, where appropriate, humans serve as subjects.
