Behavioral and Systems Neuroscience

Behavioral and Systems Neuroscience (BSN) recognizes that behavior is a biological phenomenon controlled by neural systems that were shaped by natural selection. It seeks to better understand neural systems and behavior through the study of evolution, development, and the proximate causes of behavior in genes, hormones, memory, and cognition. This research often employs comparative approaches using more than one species, ranging from birds to rodents to primates.
