The Duke University Interdisciplinary Training Program for Graduate Study 
in Cognitive Neuroscience is accepting applications for the 2007-2008 
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 and Neuroscience, 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.

Application deadline: December 31, 2006.
