The School of Mind, Brain and Behavior represents a multidisciplinary group of departments and programs dedicated to the teaching and discovery of principles and mechanisms underlying minds, brains, and behaviors. The School was formed to foster interdisciplinary dialog and collaboration among students and faculty and to create new educational and research opportunities unconstrained by traditional disciplinary boundaries. The School houses the Department of Neuroscience, the Department of Psychology, and the Department of Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences, as well as the GIDP in Neuroscience, the Program and GIDP in Cognitive Science, and the Undergraduate Program in Neuroscience & Cognitive Science. Topics range from the identification of basic cellular, molecular, genetic and developmental mechanisms to the understanding of higher-level neural and cognitive processes associated with individual and social behaviors, to the translation of empirical findings into treatments for neurological and psychiatric disorders. Core units in the School also collaborate with other units in the Colleges of Letters, Arts and Science, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, and the College of Medicine.
