What is neuroscience and behavior?
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. While our understanding of the connection between neuroscience — one of the fastest-growing scientific fields — and behavior is increasing rapidly, there is still much to discover about brain function and its impact on development, reproduction, attention control, stress, cognition, memory and more.
Why study neuroscience and behavior at UNH?
UNH was one of the first universities in New England to offer a neuroscience and behavior degree. Students engage in hands-on laboratory research with our psychology and biology faculty, gaining valuable experience with cutting-edge equipment and techniques. Our research facilities include nine on-campus research labs, including the Jackson Estuarine Lab, the Coastal Marine Lab, the Integrative Animal Behavior and Ecoacoustics Laboratory and the Confocal Imaging Center. 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.
