Our Mission

To bring together the unique resources from a consortium of Atlanta colleges and universities to build a nationally recognized program that will (a) define the interaction of brain processes and complex behaviors, (b) create a cadre of interdisciplinary investigators focused on behavioral neuroscience, and (c) transfer relevant discoveries from the laboratory to the public.

Our Vision

To become an internationally recognized center for research elucidating the brain mechanisms of social behavior, that it educate new generations of research scientists and students in innovative, interdisciplinary ways of investigating these mechanisms, and that it transmit the excitement of behavioral neuroscience to the general public.

What is the Center for Behavioral Neuroscience?

The Center for Behavioral Neuroscience - a National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center - is a consortium of seven metro Atlanta colleges and universities, including Georgia State University, Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology, Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College, Morehouse School of Medicine, and Spelman College. The CBN consists of interdisciplinary programs integrating research, education and knowledge transfer. More than 100 neuroscientists lead the CBN research program, along with a cadre of more than 50 graduate students and 25 postdoctoral students, to study the basic neurobiology of social behaviors. CBN also directs a comprehensive education program designed to prepare the next generation of neuroscientists and improve science literacy in our community.
