A particularly exciting trend in recent years, one that has altered the face of psychology, has been the merger of issues, theories, and methodologies from research on the neural bases of behavior, cognitive psychology, cognitive science, social psychology, and related areas. We have substantial strength in these areas. Funded faculty laboratories investigate the sciences of brain, mind, and behavior from a variety of perspectives. These include studying the neural bases of behavior using animal models, neurocognitive approaches with human participants, behavioral genetics, and the development and testing of computational and mathematical models of underlying processes.
