The department's curriculum is focused on the scientific study of behavior and mental processes, and where applicable, the neurobiological underpinnings of the same. The wide breadth of health-related research and clinical experiences includes the role of genes in autism and epilepsy, the neurobehavioral effects of alcohol use during the lifespan, the role of forgiveness in depression and anxiety, the neurobiology of aggression, the effects of traumatic brain injury on rehabilitation services, brain and immune system interactions in Gulf War Illness, the interaction of mind and body in the treatment of endocrine dysregulation, and cancer.
The department's faculty collaborate with local hospitals as well as clinics and medical schools across the country.
