Research - Neurobiology, Behavior, and Physiology

Behavior is adaptive and the ultimate determinant of survival, both at the level of the individual as well as the species. Understanding the physiological basis of how behavior is produced and modified requires a multidisciplinary approach at both the individual and group level that is ultimately of great benefit for human health. Here in the Department of Biology, researchers use a diversity of experimental and conceptual approaches that range from work in the field studying primate social cognition to the molecular dissection of neural networks for memory storage.
