Neurobiology, Behavior, and Physiology Research

Neurobiology, Behavior, and Physiology graphic image

Researchers in the area of neurobiology, behavior, and physiology tend to look at organismal processes, whether it is how an organism behaves or how an organism’s physiology changes under different conditions. Research spans the range of biology, from the molecular and cellular basis of behavior to interactions between organisms in an ecological context.
