The Department of Neuroscience provides opportunities for undergraduate students to work in laboratory settings. Students gain hands on experience in designing projects, carrying out experiments, and presenting their data at laboratory meetings and other venues.
Bumblebee sisters from the same colony differ morphologically; they have markedly different body and brain sizes. Genetically similar, envioronmental factors shape their behavior and learning ability.
The Department of Neuroscience focuses on the behavioral roles, development, functional mechanisms, and evolution of nervous systems.
