The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) is a nonprofit membership organization of scientists and physicians who study the brain and nervous system. Since its inception in 1969, the Society has grown from 500 members to more than 38,000. Today, SfN is the world’s largest organization of scientists and physicians devoted to advancing the understanding of the brain and nervous system.
The Society for Behavioral Neuroendocrinology (SBN) is an interdisciplinary scientific organization dedicated to the study of hormonal processes and neuroendocrine systems that regulate behavior. This focus is unique among professional societies, thus SBN’s annual meetings and its journal Hormones and Behavior provide vital forums for the integration of ideas across the field of behavioral neuroendocrinology.

The International Behavioral Neuroscience Society (IBNS) encourages research and education in the field of behavioral neuroscience. Founded in 1992, the IBNS has members from 34 countries and consists of scientists, clinicians, teachers, and others with a background and interest in the relationship between brain and behavior.
The Graduate Program in Neuroscience is a multidisciplinary program within the College for Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of British Columbia. It offers a coordinated program of graduate studies leading to M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Neuroscience. The objectives of the Program are to educate graduate students as neuroscientists with intensive experience in at least one area of research and to ensure that students in the Program develop a broadly based knowledge of the neurosciences.
UBC’s Department of Psychology is a leader in research and scholarship — with diverse rankings placing us among the strongest departments in the world.
