Penn students interested in Cognitive Neuroscience now have a variety of courses and programs to choose from, and these choices will expand further in the coming year.
At the undergraduate level, Penn now offers two courses that introduce students to the field, and a number of upper level courses in cognitive neuroscience. Undergraduate research opportunities are available in many different labs around campus. Students can focus their undergraduate studies on cognitive neuroscience either formally, through the Cognitive Neuroscience track of the Cognitive Science major, or informally, through the Biological Bases of Behavior or Psychology majors.
