Biological Basis of Behavior Program

The Biological Basis of Behavior Program (BBB) provides an interdisciplinary major for students interested in neuroscience.  The biological perspective spans from evolutionary considerations, to molecular mechanisms, to computational models.  The behavioral topics range from natural animal behaviors, to human cognition, to neurological diseases.  This field of study also requires a foundation in relevant sciences, including biology, chemistry and statistics.  Given the cross-disciplinary nature of BBB, courses are taught by faculty members from several departments in the School of Arts and Sciences, including biology, psychology, criminology and linguistics, in addition to departments in the schools of medicine, nursing, business, and communication.
