Message from the Chair

Behavioral neuroscience focuses on the interface of behavior and biological mechanisms. It is one of the fastest-growing disciplines in the biomedical sciences because it is fundamental to improving our understanding and treatment of brain illnesses such as addiction, schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease, mood disorders, and PTSD.
