Behavioral Neuroscience: Ph.D. Program
All Application Materials are Due January 15
for Admission the Following Fall Semester
The doctoral program in Behavioral Neuroscience has adopted an apprenticeship model of graduate training in which each student works closely and continuously with a faculty member within the realm of the faculty member's research interests. The research interests of the core faculty may be found on the Faculty interests page. Thus, doctoral students will pursue an emphasis in the area of Behavioral Neuroscience.
Research Facilities: To support student and faculty research programs, research facilities include:
An animal facility and animal research labs for conducting animal models of learning and memory, sociosexual behaviors, neuroendocrinology, and neuropharmacology
Cognitive psychology research labs for conducting computer-assisted data collection in cognition and neuropsychology
Psychophysiology labs with equipment for measuring nervous system activity including electrocardiogram, electrodermal activity, respiration, electromyogram, and electrooculogram as well as infrared video-based equipment for tracking eye movements and pupillary response.
