Neuroscience and Behavior: An Overview
From Sarah Schaier
Neuroscience and behavior is a multidisciplinary field that seeks to understand the complex relationship between the nervous system and behavior in humans and other animals. The neuroscience and behavior (NSB) program at UNH is a great way for students to combine interests in neurobiology and human/animal behavior. NSB students engage in hands-on laboratory research with our psychology and biology faculty and gain valuable experience with cutting-edge equipment and techniques. Our research facilities include nine on-campus research labs, including the Integrative Animal Behavior and Ecoacoustics Laboratory and the Confocal Imaging Center, along with off campus research sites such as the Jackson Estuarine Lab, the Coastal Marine Lab, and the Shoals Marine lab. The program’s progressive curriculum, award-winning faculty and opportunities for hands-on research prepare students for success in both post-graduate degree programs and the workplace.
