Cognition, Brain, & Behavior Resources and Features of the Program


The CBB area hosts a weekly proseminar where students, faculty, and visitors present their research. Prosem is the touchstone of the program, and serves as the primary forum for learning about the research interests and activities of all students and faculty in the program. Speakers discuss their research, receive helpful and constructive feedback, and engage in dialogue about the state of the science. Students learn skills for communicating and critiquing research ideas, and gain knowledge about a variety of research topics, methods, and approaches.

Colloquium Series

The Department of Psychology hosts a colloquium series which brings in word-renowned scholars from across all disciplines of Psychology.

Travel Funds

The Department of Psychology has a travel fund to facilitate students’ attendance at conferences to present their research.

Multi-disciplinary Collaborations

Syracuse University and the Syracuse community provide a wide array of facilities for learning including excellent research laboratories, computer facilities and libraries. CBB faculty and their research labs collaborate with faculty in other departments and programs at Syracuse University and Upstate Medical University. The interdisciplinary Aging Studies Institute at Syracuse University, Neuroscience Program, and the Center for Advanced Systems and Engineering are of special interest to some of the faculty and students in Cognition, Brain & Behavior.

Mentoring Undergraduates in Research

CBB faculty and graduate students are committed to mentoring undergraduates in research. Undergraduates are co-authors on several conference presentation and publications resulting from these mentoring relationships. Graduate students have the opportunity to build their mentoring skills. Of particular importance, CBB faculty and students participate in the summer research program for underrepresented minority students in Psychology.
