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.
