Getting Started in the Field
Comparative Evolutionary Psychology
Welcome to Division 6: Behavioral Neuroscience and Comparative Psychology
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.
Membership is open to professionals and students with an interest in the goals and mission of the Division. Division 6 currently has the following four categories: Fellow; Member; Affiliate; and Student Affiliate.
