Graduate training in Psychology and Neuroscience at Duke provides students with exceptional opportunities to examine mind, brain, and behavior at different levels of analysis (e.g., neural, molecular, individual, and social) using a variety of techniques (e.g., brain imaging, animal models, computational models, experimental research with humans, surveys, and field studies). Working together with faculty members in a variety of related programs, we apply our knowledge and state of the art techniques to answer questions that are central to an understanding of mind, brain, and behavior.
