The Center for Systems & Behavioral Neurobiology at Drexel’s Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy is dedicated to investigating the molecular, cellular, network, and behavioral mechanisms of sensory information processing, learning and memory, attention, emotion, locomotion, feeding, motivation and the neuropsychiatric disorders associated with these processes.
Members of the Center include a diverse group of neuroscientists who interrogate the neural mechanisms underlying behavior by employing an array of techniques to examine the processes by which the brain orchestrates behavior and how dysregulation of these processes leads to psychiatric disorders.
The collaborative nature of our members has led to extensive scientific interactions among faculty, students, and post-doctoral fellows within the Center, the Department, the University and beyond. Through an open exchange of ideas and knowledge, the Center aims to uncover the neural processes underlying adaptive and maladaptive behavior, which will pave the way for treating neurological and psychiatric disorders.
