The Duke Institute for Brain Sciences offers an interdisciplinary program for graduate study in cognitive neuroscience via the Cognitive Neuroscience Admitting Program, which consists of intensive multi-disciplinary coursework and research lab rotations in the first two years, following by a transition into a PhD degree-granting program in years 3-5.
Duke's interdepartmental Graduate Program in Neurobiology includes about 50 faculty in 17 departments from across Duke’s integrated campus in Durham, North Carolina.
Research on the brain spans many levels, from molecules to behavior, and touches on many different fields of inquiry. Graduate students interested in neuroscience may work with faculty mentors by enrolling in one of several different PhD programs, depending on their precise interests. The different programs focus on different levels of analysis of the nervous system, ranging.Since 1999, the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience (CCN) has served as the central focus at Duke University for research, education, and training in the psychological, computational, and biological mechanisms of higher mental function; variability in these mechanisms among individuals, across the lifespan, and between species; application of these mechanisms to real-world.Duke has cutting-edge research programs in the biological, social, and emotional causes of addiction and the comparative efficacy of treatment. The Center on Addiction and Behavior Change (CABC) is the first university-based addiction center to offer basic and translational neurobiological research toward the prevention, early intervention, and treatment of addiction.
Our faculty have special expertise in a range of active research areas, including applied ethics (from business ethics to bioethics to medical ethics), political philosophy, the philosophy of biology, Chinese Philosophy, philosophy of mind and of neuroscience, epistemology, moral psychology, philosophy of economics, ancient philosophy and early modern history and philosophy of science.Read More

Kevin LaBar, PhD, is Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience. How dogs can help us adjust to social distancing and other COVID-19 challenges. I want to understand how different types of cognition evolve, including in our own species. Dogs have provided a powerful way to test ideas about how selection can shape psychology.Read More
Neuroscience is a sub-field of biology that specialises in the study of the nervous system structure, evolution and function. Neural science is constantly developing, but it can be divided into the branches of cognitive, clinical, computational and developmental neuroscience.Read More

Offered by Duke University. Medical Neuroscience explores the functional organization and neurophysiology of the human central nervous system, while providing a neurobiological framework for understanding human behavior. In this course, you will discover the organization of the neural systems in the brain and spinal cord that mediate sensation, motivate bodily action, and integrate.Read More
