The Goldberg lab gets BRAIN funding! Together with Paul McEuen (Cornell University Applied Physics) and Ethan Minot (Oregon State University) the Goldberg lab received NSF BRAIN support. The project, titled, "Stretchable Graphene Transistors for High Signal, High Channel Count Neural Recording," will attempt to leverage recent advances in graphene nanofabrication to develop a new electrode-tissue interface.

MelissaWarden receives a NYSCF - Robertson Neuroscience Investigator award!

Jesse Goldberg is named a Pew Biomedical Scholar!

Elizabeth Bergen

The Department of Neurobiology and Behavior (NB&B) has a distinguished faculty with interests ranging from the intrinsic properties of neurons to the organization of animal societies. Research in the Department falls into five overlapping core areas: cellular and molecular neuroscience, systems neuroscience, computational neuroscience, chemical ecology, and animal social behavior.  The Department offers a broad range of courses and research opportunities, making it the most popular biology concentration at Cornell.


The associated Graduate Field of Neurobiology and Behavior encompasses all aspects of neurobiological and behavioral research on Cornell’s Ithaca campus.  The graduate program's goal is to advance the understanding of neurobiology and behavior by training the next generation of scientists working at this exciting interface.
