Neuropsychology and Behavioral Neuroscience

The Neuropsychology and Behavioral Neuroscience (NBN) Program offers multidisciplinary training in clinical, experimental, and developmental neuropsychology as well as in the behavioral neurosciences. Faculty interested in understanding brain-behavior relationships – in humans and non-human species – provide in-depth training to students preparing for applied or basic careers in the neurosciences.

Students may choose from one of two tracks within this program, both of which prepare students for research careers:

Track 1 is a joint NBN-clinical program and is designed to provide neuropsychological and neuroscience training to students who have primary interests in or questions regarding applied and clinical populations and who would also like to be eligible for clinical licensure. Students interested in Track 1 are applying to BOTH the NBN and the Clinical Programs, and must indicate the joint program on the application.

Track 2 is designed to provide neuropsychological and neuroscience training to students who have either applied or basic science interests, but do not have an interest in being licensed.
