TA 3: Systems & Behavioral Neuroscience

Systems and Behavioral Neuroscience investigates brain functions and mechanisms by observing and measuring a subject’s behavior either alone or in conjunction with neural activity.

The primary emphasis of the field is on quantitative measurements of behavior or neural activity, including invasive and non-invasive brain signals. Acquired data are digitized, stored, and subsequently processed and analyzed with advanced computational methods.

These experimental data can reveal new biological insights, and inform and guide quantitative models and simulations of brain functions.
