Center for Neuroscience, Mind & Behavior
The J.P. Scott Center for Neuroscience, Mind & Behavior at Bowling Green State University is an interdisciplinary research center that is comprised of faculty, post-doctoral researchers, graduate, and undergraduate students from the Departments of Psychology, Biology, Communication Disorders and Philosophy, who are pursuing interdisciplinary programs of research that advance understanding of the dynamic relationship between the nervous system, mind, and behavior. Our general mission is to offer a mechanistic understanding of integrated systems of behavior at levels of analysis that bridge individual molecules, cells, and circuits with mental processes and cognition. We welcome and encourage participation of faculty and students with interdisciplinary research interests in the neural or cognitive sciences that contribute to the broad Center mission at any level of analysis.
