Behavioral Neuroscience

Student in Meyer lab

Behavioral Neuroscience is a sub-discipline within the broader field of psychology focused on the interface between the brain and behavior. 

The Behavioral Neuroscience Area in the Department of Psychology at UB has a strong focus on understanding the control of motivated behaviors and the neural systems that underlie learning. Our laboratories study topics such as how taste guides decision-making about what to eat and what not to eat, what neural systems and hormones underlie important developmental social interactions such as play, how the brain controls feeding and drinking behaviors, and what types of changes happen in the brain during learning.
