Doctor of Philosophy in the Field of Cognitive Neuroscience
The cognitive neuroscience program provides graduate students with an intense and focused research experience in the areas of perception, attention, and memory, with emphasis on the neural bases of these capacities. The program uses diverse research methods such as patient-based testing, neuro-imaging, animal modeling, psychophysical scaling, and computational modeling. The goal of the program is to train students for careers in academic and research institutions.
