Biopsychology

What is Biopsychology?

Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and mental processes. Biopsychologists are concerned with those biological, cognitive, and social factors that influence how humans and other animals function within their environments. Biopsychology at UCSB is a laboratory science that is grounded in experimental research methods and statistics.

At UCSB, the Biopsychology major is for students interested in an intensive study of the relationship between brain function and behavior. The major requires completion of upper-division courses in neurophysiology and neuroanatomy, biochemical, endocrine, and pharmacological regulations in the central nervous system, and the behavioral and psychological data related to these topics.
