The research and activity in Bowdoin's neuroscience laboratories are both diverse and complementary. Though the faculty have their own areas of specialization, they work collaboratively with students, colleagues, and scholars throughout the world. The laboratory facilities in the Druckenmiller Science Building and the new Kanbar Hall are state-of-the-art.
As the labs are, for both student and faculty research, a major focus of the program we invite you to explore the fascinating research that goes on.
Patsy S. Dickinson's research focuses on the control of behavior by neural networks in simple model systems such as those found in crustaceans.
