The Neurogenetics and Behavior Center is a unique resource for using gene targeting technology to study basic functions of the brain and disorders relevant to psychiatric and neurological disease.
The Neurogenetics and Behavior Center provides behavioral assessments in three broad functional domains: sensorimotor, affective processes, and cognition, the latter including learning, memory, and attention. Phenotypic analysis in these domains provides services to investigators and research groups at many sites nationally.
In addition to providing a facility for standard behavioral testing and data analysis, investigators in the Neurogenetics and Behavior Center, who are internationally recognized behavioral neuroscientists, work collectively to develop innovative assessments appropriate to the research goals of the users.
The Neurogenetics and Behavior Center also provides a resource for training young scientists in the wide range of expertise needed to accomplish integrative research, bridging from the genomic/molecular/cellular levels of analysis to the study of behavioral systems and functional disorders.
