Behavioral neuroscience is a field that relates behavior to bodily processes such as the inner workings of the brain.[1] The field is often referred to as biological psychology and psychobiology. Behavioral neuroscience is often considered a subdiscipline within psychology or neuroscience. The main goal of behavioral neuroscience is the understanding of behavior and experience in terms of their biological substrates.

Studies in behavioral neuroscience cover the entire range of relevant biological and neural sciences, including anatomy, chemistry, physiology, endocrinology, and pharmacology.
