DUKE'S INTERDISCIPLINARY TRAINING PROGRAM IN COGNITIVE NEUROSCIENCE

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 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, 2008.

website at http://www.mind.duke.edu and click on Training, then 
Graduate.
