Cognitive Neuroscience & Biopsychology

The Cognitive Neuroscience & Biopsychology (CNB) concentration in the Department of Psychology's PhD program is dedicated to training today's students as individuals who shape the future of neuroscientific and biological research in psychology. Our current faculty are actively engaged in research in a wide variety of areas. 

In addition to their research involvement, CNB graduate students are encouraged to establish themselves as effective educators. They are invited to teach or serve as teaching assistants for laboratory sections and/or undergraduate courses during the academic year and summer sessions, with a special focus on courses that are relevant to their own research interests and career goals. They also have ample opportunities to mentor and supervise undergraduate students in their research programs.

We welcome your inquiries into our training area, so please feel free to contact the area director (Dr. Rachel Diana) or any of our affiliated faculty for more information.

GRE Scores will not be accepted for Fall 2023 application cycle (admission to Fall 2024):  For applicants to the Cognitive Neuroscience & Biopsychology training program, GRE scores will be neither required nor accepted.  All applicants are evaluated holistically.
