The Department of Neurobiology and Behavior (NB&B) was one of the very first departments to combine the study of animal behavior with its neural basis, based on the belief that the interface between them was one of great research potential. NB&B has brought this idea to fruition with its interactive faculty, postdocs and graduate students all sharing the goal of understanding how the nervous system underlies behavior.  Using sophisticated tools of genetics, optogenetics, imaging, computational neuroscience, and game theory NB&B researchers are exploring the frontiers of neurobiology and behavior.
