Cognitive Neuroscience

Cognitive Neuroscience (CNS)

Our Cognitive Neuroscience track provides a rigorous understanding of how the human brain supports action, affect, decision making, language, perception, reasoning, social processes, and other aspects of cognition and behavior, including how such processes develop and change in child and adult brains through time.

In training you focus on learning one or more techniques used in Cognitive Neuroscience and performing extensive empirical research in your chosen program of study. Our Cognitive Neuroscience faculty have strong associations with the Imaging Research Facility, which is located in the Psychology building, and features 3T fMRI, 256-channel EEG, TMS, and MR-compatible EEG.

Our faculty share affiliations with other areas in PBS and other programs on campus, such as the Cognitive Science Program, the School of Optometry, the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences, and the Program in Neuroscience. Our students are encouraged to seek multidisciplinary opportunities in both their research and coursework.
