Welcome to the Behavioral Neuroscience Program
at the University of Colorado Boulder

The fundamental tenet of the Behavioral Neuroscience Program is that a complete understanding of behavior entails unraveling mechanisms and principles at any and all levels of organization (i.e., behavioral, neuroanatomical, neurophysiological, neurochemical). Since ideas, methods and techniques from these underlying levels of analysis are necessary for the investigation of brain-behavior relations, each student is expected to achieve general competence in the breadth of the neurosciences as well as in-depth proficiency in those areas relevant to his or her special interests.
