Program Description:

The Duke University Interdisciplinary Training Program for Graduate Study in Cognitive Neuroscience is accepting applications for the 2009-2010 academic year. Through an intensive two-year sequence of courses, lab rotations, and seminars, students will learn innovative approaches to research on higher human brain functions, including, but not limited to, perception, attention, memory, language, emotion, motor control, executive functions, consciousness, and the evolution of mental processes. The training program cuts across departmental boundaries, with faculty from Psychology, Neurobiology, Psychiatry, Radiology, Biomedical Engineering, Neurology, Computer Science, Biology, and Philosophy. In addition to the breadth and depth of the faculty, the combined resources of the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, the Brain Imaging and Analysis Center, and the Program offer an unusually rich technical environment for training in the cognitive neuroscience methodologies of brain imaging, electrical brain recording, behavioral analysis and psychophysics, and computational modeling. The Program offers this interdisciplinary training in collaboration with the participating degree-granting departments, in a structure in which the student obtains a Ph.D. from one of these departments in a specialized curriculum focused on Cognitive Neuroscience.
