Cognitive & Behavioral Neuroscience

Cognitive Neuroscience: The study of cognitive processes and their implementation in the brain. Cognitive neuroscientists use methods drawn from brain damage, neuropsychology, cognitive psychology, functional neuroimaging, and computer modeling.

Behavioral Neuroscience: The study of how the nervous system mediates behavioral effects in the realms of motivation, perception, learning and memory, and attention and motor performance. Research in this area investigates the complex interplay between the brain, behavior and environment, utilizing multiple levels of experimental analysis, in areas that include communication, biological rhythms, and learning and memory, and audition.
