WHAT IS PHYSIOLOGY AND NEUROBIOLOGY (PNB)?
This major is part of the BEP Exploration Group
The discipline is devoted to understanding human and animal physiology using approaches ranging from studies of animal behavior to the investigation of molecular mechanisms of cellular function. Expertise within the department spans several fields including neuroscience, endocrinology, renal and muscle physiology, and membrane function. The Physiology and Neurobiology major combines the advantages of specialization in this exciting field with the breadth supplied by a variety of courses from related departments.
This major deals with the living organism on the tissue, organ and organ system level. It is particularly interested in how the nervous and endocrine (hormonal) systems regulate all other systems to maintain homeostasis in the body.
