Minor in Behavioral and Cognitive Neuropsychology

Program Description

The minor in Behavioral and Cognitive Neuropsychology provides a systemic introduction to the neural basis of mental functioning and behavior, both normal and abnormal. It includes research from experimental work done with both humans and animals, as well as findings from clinical human populations. The goal of the minor is to provide a balanced, synthesized, and integrated view of what we know about the brain and its relation to cognition and behavior.
