The Brain & Behaviour theme explores the underlying bases of behaviour and its complications. All aspects of human behaviour - productive and destructive - result from interactions between individuals and environments, and are profoundly influenced by the biological origins of the species. Our research emphasises the implications of these points for such issues as mental health, problem behaviour, and the biological systems of the body.
