Neuroethology is a branch of neuroscience that explores the neural mechanisms of naturally occurring animal behaviour. This approach takes advantage of the variety of behaviours and nervous systems found among different species to understand how evolution shaped each organism to its environmental niche, and to reveal general principles of the structure and function of the nervous system.
