Scientists, as well as philosophers, have always asked why animals and people behave as they do. Behaviour involves a wide range of traits from animal communication, foraging, sexual behaviour, social organization, and cognition. Research into behavior ranges from analyses involving hormone levels and gene expression through to addressing broad questions such as the functions that behaviour serves, how behaviour develops, and how did specific behaviors evolve. This area of study draws on expertise from both the Department of Biology as well as the Department of Psychology.
