The Duke University Interdisciplinary Training Program for Graduate Study 
in Cognitive Neuroscience is accepting applications for the 2008-2009 
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 
Graduate 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 15, 2007.
