The program in Behavioral Neuroscience provides training in the biological foundations of behavior, with a particular focus on sensation, learning and memory, affect, development, neural plasticity, social behavior, and animal models of developmental and affective disorders. The program reflects the multidisciplinary nature of the neurosciences and our research involves a wide range of modern neuroanatomical, neurophysiological, neuropharmacological, and behavioral techniques.
Our faculty are Amy Griffin, Will Kenkel, Anna Klintsova, Dayan Knox, Stuart McCaughey, Josh Neunuebel, Eric Roth, Tania Roth, Jaclyn Schwarz, and Mark Stanton (view their webpages by clicking their names). Collectively, we have authored hundreds of publications, made 200+ conference presentations and 100+ invited symposia and colloquia presentations. We have served as officers (including President) of prestigious scientific societies, and on the editorial boards of leading scientific journals. Our honors include Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Psychological Association, and the Association of Psychological Science, to name just a few. Funding is robust, and drawn from multiple sources, including a Centers for Biomedical Research Excellence Grant from NIGMS, NIH, plus individual investigator grants from the National Institute of Mental Health, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse & Alcoholism, National Institute of Child Health & Human Development, among numerous other federal and private sources (see Current Funding, to the left, for a list)
Students work closely with faculty advisors who mentor them throughout their graduate career. Students often work with more than one faculty member. Faculty mentors provide training in research techniques, scholarly knowledge, and written and oral communication skills that enable students to become successful independent researchers. Students publish research findings in prominent journals; present them at national meetings; develop teaching skills; and write grant applications. These experiences, and others, have helped our graduate students win numerous awards and prepared them for successful research in academia, government, or industry (see Graduate student outcomes, to the left, for a list)
