The Brain and Behavior

Investigating human behavior and how it is driven by the biology and chemistry of the brain is the final frontier of scientific research and has been a major focus for researchers in many disciplines at Kent State University.  Our researchers are investigating a broad array of neuroscience problems, ranging from the molecular level to the behavioral level and everything in between.  They engage in cutting edge research that seeks answers to some of neuromedicine’s most difficult problems, including preventing violence, curbing substance abuse, traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, fear and acute trauma, neurodegenerative diseases, stroke, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. 

A major challenge of neuroscience research is finding the common links between brain biology and behavior and determining how modifying one affects the other.  Our researchers who work in biology, psychology, chemistry, public health and aging, bring many scientific perspectives to this challenging and exciting field.

We invite you to explore our neuroscience research in the disciplines of psychology, biology and public health.
