The brain gives rise to our thoughts, behaviors, emotions, even our sense of self. Cognitive and behavioral neuroscientists at NYU reveal the neural substrates that underlie high order mental processes and how they are disrupted in neurological disorders as well as principles of human and animal behavior.
