Neuroscience

Faculty in the Neuroscience area are interested in the neurophysiological, social/contextual, and evolutionary bases for cognition and behavior in both humans and nonhuman animals.  We emphasize an integrated, comparative approach among species and across levels of organization, from cellular networks to complex natural behavior.  How do neural circuits represent information, allocate resources, and generate behavior? How do social, developmental and situational factors regulate cognitive and emotional processes, adaptive behavior, and the neural and hormonal systems that underlie them?  How do brains acquire, remember, and integrate environmental experience so as to determine effective behavioral strategies?
