Welcome to Penn State Neural and Behavioral Sciences Faculty
The faculty attaches great importance to its teaching mission. In addition to core and elective graduate courses in Neuroscience , the faculty provides instruction to the graduate programs in Cell and Molecular Biology, Pharmacology and Genetics, and to medical students in the case based curricula.
