Each tenure-track faculty member has an active research lab in their areas of interest and expertise. Graduate and undergraduate students are integral members of these labs.
Our faculty publish more than 300 peer-reviewed journal articles each year in top journals in our fields of study.
The Clinical Psychology Program comprises three concentrations—General Clinical, Clinical-Community (administered jointly with the Community Program) and Clinical Neuropsychology (administered jointly with the Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Program). Research across these concentrations aims to deepen our understanding of risk for, experience of and resilience to psychological problems in diverse individuals. Labs rely on a broad range of tools and approaches (for example, behavioral paradigms, neuroimaging and other psychophysiological methods, intervention trials) to conduct research.
Faculty in this area conduct experimental research in the laboratory and in the field. Research areas focus on aspects of cognition including memory, decision-making and attention within different participant groups such as children, non-human primates, aging adults and clinical populations. Applications include neuro-ethics, neuroscience, comparative psychology, psychology and law, language processing and industry data analytics.
Our students and graduates use theory and empirical research from psychology and related disciplines to develop, implement, evaluate, and advocate for effective social interventions that promote the well-being of diverse populations, in diverse settings, in the United States and internationally. The training we provide is guided by the following values: a research-informed perspective; interdisciplinary scholarship and collaborative relationships.
Our faculty and students focus on real world developmental research projects. Scholars are trained in the methods and the science of normative as well as atypical paths of development from toddlers through adults. They develop a rich methodological toolkit for designing and assessing outcomes of developmental investigations.
The research projects in Neuropsychology and Cognitive Neuroscience aim at understanding both functional and dysfunctional brain-behavior relationships at various levels and provide in-depth training for careers in basic or applied research.
