The Neuroscience and Behavior (NSB) graduate program at the University of Massachusetts Amherst reflects both the diversity and interdisciplinary focus of research in this exciting field. A broad range of departments and academic colleges are represented by participating faculty members and postdoctoral research fellows. A number of faculty from four nearby colleges (Amherst College, Smith College, Mount Holyoke College, and Hampshire College) also have affiliations with the NSB Program, thereby enhancing both the expertise and scholarly resources that are available to the NSB Program and graduate students.
Five broadly defined areas of research and training are represented in the NSB Program. These are (1) Neuroendocrinology, (2) Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience, (3) Animal Behavior and Learning (4) Neural and Behavioral Development, and (5) Sensorimotor, Cognitive, and Computational Neuroscience. More information about these research areas may be found under The Program in Neuroscience and Behavior. State-of-the-art facilities are available for neural and behavioral studies at all levels of investigation from molecules to whole organisms. Indeed, many researchers within the NSB Program are carrying out multidisciplinary studies that cut across multiple levels of analysis.
