Welcome to Div. 6: Society for Behavioral Neuroscience and Comparative Psychology (SBNCP)
Behavioral neuroscientists study the brain in relation to behavior, its evolution, functions, abnormalities, and repair, as well as its interactions with the immune system, cardiovascular system, and energy regulation systems. Comparative psychologists study the behavior of humans and other animals, with a special eye on similarities and differences that may shed light on evolutionary and developmental processes.
Division President Stan Kuczaj, PhD, is professor of psychology and director of the Marine Mammal Behavior and Cognition Laboratory at the University of Southern Mississippi. He received a BA in psychology from the University of Texas at Austin and a PhD in child psychology from the University of Minnesota.
