Brain and Cognitive Sciences (BCS)
Faculty and students in the Brain and Cognitive Sciences Program are working on a wide range of research questions across the domains of cognition, perception, and neuroscience. Students in this program are presented with a unique opportunity for integrative work across a variety of perspectives. A list of faculty working in the BCS Program is given below, along with a brief indication of their research interests.
In addition to pursuing a Ph.D. in the Psychology Department, graduate students with neuroscience interests can also join the interdisciplinary Neuroscience@Temple Program which includes faculty from the Biology, Pharmacology, Physical Therapy, and Psychology Departments.
