Behavioural neuroscience is the study of the relationship between animal and human behavior, and the nervous system. This area of expertise cuts across many disciplines and incorporates such fields as anatomy, neurobiology, neuropsychology, pharmacology, physiology, psychiatry and psychology.
Thus, training in behavioral neuroscience extends beyond the boundaries of traditional departments. Faculty members from the School of Psychology, the Department of Psychiatry at the Institute of Mental Health Research, and the Royal Ottawa Hospital participate in teaching, research training, and student supervision as a means of augmenting the scope of the program.
