Rissman named Head of Biological Sciences at NC State

Dr. Emilie Rissman has been named the first permanent head of NC State’s new Department of Biological Sciences. Her appointment is effective Nov. 1.

Welcome from the President

SBN President Cheryl Sisk.

Welcome to the website of the Society for Behavioral Neuroendocrinology (SBN). Since 1996, the SBN has been promoting intellectual exchanges between scientists who have interests in the interactions of the nervous system and the endocrine system on behavior and in the influences of behavior and the environment on neuroendocrine systems. We are an inclusive society with a very diverse membership. Our members are interested in quite an array of behaviors – reproductive behavior, parental behaviors, social behaviors, eating and drinking, responses to stressors, learning and memory, aggression and more, as well as mental health. We are interested in a wide range of species, from simple organisms, like c. elegans to humans and everything in between. We are interested in interactions at the molecular, cellular, and organismic/behavioral level of investigation. We work in laboratories, as well as in the field. Many of our members study natural behaviors, which in turn shed light on behavioral disorders, which often have strong neuroendocrine components. This rich mixture of ideas and approaches can be seen in the Society’s journal, Hormones and Behavior , and can be enjoyed at our vibrant, annual meetings.
