Program Description:

Binghamton University’s doctoral program in Behavioral Neuroscience provides a research-intense and highly individualized course of study. The program emphasizes three principle areas of scientific training: breadth of knowledge, analytical and methodological skills, and scientific communication skills. You can find professors with extensive experience in all major aspects of the field, from behavioral assessments to functional neuroanatomy. Members of our faculty work closely with students on collaborative research projects aimed at cutting edge developments in the field. Some current research projects include studies of sensory information and memory, the physiology of alcohol and drug addiction, and attempts to better understand Parkinson’s disease. We also cooperate with researchers outside Binghamton University, including several foreign scientific groups, to provide additional opportunities for practical experience in the field. The behavioral neuroscience Ph.D. program is highly selective, accepting only a few students each year. While prior academic performance, test scores and letters of recommendation are considered by the faculty, another important factor for admission is a convergence of research interests between prospective students and the faculty. Past alumni of the program now hold positions at universities and research organizations around the world. We invite you to visit our website and explore faculty and alumni profiles to see how else Binghamton can help you achieve success.
