About NRLC

The Neurobehavioral Research Laboratory and Clinic (NRLC) maintains this website and participates in a variety of social media to advance our mission. The following provides some detail of these activities.


In additional to our division website on the UTHSCSA domain, we maintain this website to:

  • disseminate and provide technical support for the software we have developed for the assessment of human behavior
  • communicate educational content on mental health topics
  • advertise enrollment opportunities for ongoing studies
  • broadcast our employment and volunteer opportunities
  • promote our research activities

The website, designed by Pixel Brain Design and maintained by Charles Mathias, is best viewed at resolutions of 1024x768 or greater.



The NRLC logo was designed to represent our multi-disciplinary, translational approach to research. The three primary elements are the head, the axon, and the green background. The blue head and white/blue axon represent the brain and our study of the biological basis for behavior as well as the target for pharmacological interventions. The green background represents the environmental. The environment influences the behaviors that we study and provides a context for interpreting these behaviors. The environment also represents the context within which our community efforts occur to prevent substance use involvement. The NRLC uses an integrated approach to each of these elements in order to advancing our efforts at the understanding, treatment, and prevention of mental health issues.
