The Center consists of faculty and other researchers from Penn State University who share an interest in the neuroscience that underpins behavior of vertebrates, invertebrates, humans, robotics, and models of neural systems.


Departments and campuses

The Center represents members from a diverse array of departments across both University Park and Hershey campuses, and there is a sister Center at the Penn State Hershey College of Medicine.
