Behavior and the Nervous System

Students pursuing the Neuroscience and the Animal Behavior majors through the Biological Foundations of Behavior Program at F&M make significant contributions to our collective understanding of the nervous system and behavior through biomedical and non-invasive behavioral research in collaboration with F&M faculty.

Research in neuroscience and animal behavior is integrated into the BFB curriculum from early coursework in the major, to collaborative research experiences in small teams of students, to long-term student/faculty collaboration on federally-funded research project. Neuroscience and Animal Behavior students at F&M often serve as coauthors on publications and/or present their research at national meetings of professional societies in neuroscience, biology, psychology, and animal behavior (e.g., The Society for Neuroscience, The American Psychological Association; see below for additional details).

Established in 1996, the Biological Foundations of Behavior Program is staffed jointly by members of the Departments of Biology and Psychology.

It also has close ties to  Scientific and Philosophical Studies of Mind, an interdisciplinary program sponsored by the Philosophy and Psychology Departments.
