Biological Psychology

The Biological Psychology (BP) graduate concentration is dedicated to training today's students as individuals who shape the future of neuroscientific and biological research in psychology. Our current faculty are actively engaged in research in a multitude of areas. The BP faculty conduct research in diverse populations, embrace varied conceptual and methodological orientations, and engage different levels of analysis.

In addition to their research involvement, BP graduate students are encouraged to establish themselves as effective educators. They are invited to teach introductory psychology recitation sections, laboratories, and/or undergraduate courses during the academic year and summer sessions, with a special focus on courses that are relevant to their own research interests and career goals. They also have ample opportunities to mentor and supervise undergraduate students in their research programs.

We welcome your inquiries into our training area, so please feel free to contact the area director (Dr. Bruce Friedman) or any of our affiliated faculty for more information.
