Mission Statement

The nervous system is the organ of sensation and response that that regulates and integrates all our bodily functions and behaviors.  The primary mission of the Department of Neural and Behavioral Sciences is to enhance and promote studies of the nervous system at Penn State University College of Medicine.  To do this we provide the highest quality training in the full range of neuroscience to future physicians and scientists, conduct research that increases our understanding of the nervous system, and translate this understanding into novel approaches that benefit those suffering from neurological disorders.
