At McMaster, the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour (PNB) is a leader in the study of brain-behavioural relations and psychological sciences. The PNB Department places an important emphasis on interdisciplinary research, pedagogy and the training of the next generation of behavioural and psychological scientists.

Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour is the scientific study of the brain and behaviour.  It is a science and a practice.  As scientists, experimental psychologists conduct research to help understand why people think, feel, and behave the way they do.  As clinicians, counsellors, or other practitioners, psychologists apply scientific understanding towards helping individuals, institutions, and society deal with issues relating to human behaviour and happiness.
