The neurobehavior ontology: an ontology for annotation and integration of behavior and behavioral phenotypes.

Author information

Department of Genetics, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, UK.


In recent years, considerable advances have been made toward our understanding of the genetic architecture of behavior and the physical, mental, and environmental influences that underpin behavioral processes. The provision of a method for recording behavior-related phenomena is necessary to enable integrative and comparative analyses of data and knowledge about behavior. The neurobehavior ontology facilitates the systematic representation of behavior and behavioral phenotypes, thereby improving the unification and integration behavioral data in neuroscience research.
