The fourth cohort of Klarman Fellows is the largest since the program’s launch in 2019, includes scholars investigating quantum phases of two-dimensional materials, mechanisms of social mobility, housing politics of metro areas, and gaps between neuro cognition and artificial intelligence, among oth...Read More
Department of Neurobiology and Behavior
The Department of Neurobiology and Behavior (NB&B) was one of the very first departments to combine the study of animal behavior with its neural basis, based on the belief that the interface between them was one of great research potential. The interests of our faculty and students span all levels of organization, from single neurons to complex circuits to whole organisms and societies thereof.

Embracing Darwinian beekeeping may help honeybee colonies survive. According to Tom Seeley, Horace White Professor in Biology, “If you let an animal live naturally, it is able to use its full toolbox and set of skills to survive and reproduce, but when you take any kind of animal and you force it ...Read More
Research Spotlight: Orb-weaver spider uses web to capture sounds
Professor Emeritus Ron Hoy's study of orb weaver spiders finds their massive webs also act as auditory arrays that capture sounds, possibly giving spiders advanced warning of incoming prey or predators.
The findings have implications for designing bio-inspired extremely sensitive microphones for use in hearing aids and cell phones.
