Cognitive Neuroscience Concentration
Cognitive neuroscience is a rapidly growing field due to significant technological advances in brain imaging techniques. Understanding how the brain functions can help us to better understand cognitive processes and human behavior.
As a student majoring in cognitive neuroscience, you’ll gain a solid understanding of:
- the relationship between brain and behavior
- cognitive processes involved in a wide variety of human activities
- brain activity that occurs in both normal and abnormal brain function
- imaging techniques and neuropsychological tests that are used to diagnose and understand Traumatic Brain Injury and disease processes such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, stroke and brain tumors
A major in cognitive neuroscience prepares students for careers in clinical settings, hospitals, neuropsychology and school psychology, or for graduate work in cognitive psychology.
