The graduate training program in Behavioral Neuroscience is administered according to a mentorship model. Incoming students are assigned to a particular faculty member (or members) based on mutual research interests. At the present time, faculty members within the Program have active research programs in the areas of physiological psychology, neural mechanisms of human color perception, biological foundation of perceptual and cognitive capacities, and cognitive neuroscience of learning and memory. The wide range of faculty interests allows broad instruction across the field of behavioral neuroscience as well as advanced training in specialized areas.
