Our History

BRAIN AND BEHAVIOUR CLUSTER (BBC) is a cluster that placed under the School of Medical Sciences, Health Campus, Universiti Sains Malaysia,Kubang Kerian, Kelantan.

The cluster combined several schools and departments from Main Campus, Health Campus, Engineering Campus and the Advanced Medical and Dental Institute. The main purpose of setting up this cluster is to create trans-disciplinary in services and research.

The BBC is the continuation of the Center for Neuroscience Services and Research (P3Neuro) which was formally established on 22 December 2015 to provide trans-disciplinary in services and research. However, BBC is performed by larger combination and involves multiple disciplines with broader objectives.



17 August 2000

The Department of Neuroscience was established to replace the Neuroscience Unit (under Department of Surgery) with total of 20 lecturers / researchers and 24 other staff members.

22 December 2015

Due to positive developments in the Department of Neuroscience, the Center for Neuroscience Services and Research (P3Neuro) was established under the administration of the Health Campus Director's Office to provide services and conduct research on neuroscience.

31 July 2018

However, through the senate decision dated July 31, 2018, USM governance authorities have suggested that P3Neuro should be placed under PPSP. This decision was made due to the limited University’s financial status and the majority staff involved in were from PPSP.

20 August 2018

A preliminary discussion was conducted and agreed that a new cluster would be created. The cluster will be named "BRAIN AND BEHAVIOUR CLUSTER (BBC)" and will be under the administration of PPSP (not under the Department in PPSP).

1 January 2019

The BBC is officially established and operated with 58 affiliates from various Schools / Departments.
