Prospective Students

Graduate Students

Dr. Naftali Raz mentors Psychology graduate students in academic and professional careers. The majority of his students are enrolled in the Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience area in the Department of Psychology (students from other areas of Psychology and Neuroscience are also welcome) and are pre-doctoral trainees at the Institute of Gerontology.  Upon graduation, students usually continue their post-doctoral training at other leading laboratories and develop academic research careers.

In the Cognitive Neuroscience of Aging Laboratory, graduate students acquire a wide range of research skills. Their training includes computer-aided processing and analysis of MRI images, design and administration of cognitive and neuropsychological tests, and statistical analysis. Our neuroimaging projects are conducted at the Magnetic Resonance Research Facility in collaboration with E. Mark Haacke, Ph.D. For more information, download a copy of our brochure (PDF) and for a detailed summary of active studies, please refer to our research page.

Prospective graduate students are encouraged to contact Dr. Raz and current graduate students with any questions they may have regarding research and education at Wayne State University; both in general and with regards to the Behavioral and Cognitive Neuroscience program. For contact information, please refer to faculty or staff member profiles.
