Neurobiology brings together many disciplines including biochemistry, molecular biology, anatomy, physiology, and medicine, to study the development and function of the brain. It is the study of cells of the nervous system and the organization of these cells into functional circuits that process information and mediate behavior. It is a sub-discipline of both biology and neuroscience.
Highlights of Neurobiology TAARs are vertebrate olfactory receptors and form an ever-evolving sensory subsystem. Some TAARs detect volatile amines that evoke aversion or attraction behavior. Natural TAAR ligands include odors from carnivores, male mice, and rotting tissue. TAARs provide a valuable model for studying neural circuits that encode odor valence.
