Neuroscience News

Temple University’s Neuroscience professors take students on a journey through the mind in search of exciting new discoveries. Here, the College of Liberal Arts will take you through the journeys those bright minds embark on during their time at Temple and beyond. Read the student, alumni and faculty stories here and contact us if you have a Temple Neuroscience story of your own you think should be shared. Undergraduate and graduate students experience a hands-on approach to learning that includes studying ADHD, addiction, depression, age-related disorders, anxiety and more. Guided by the faculty, students conduct exciting research using modern techniques to help them make a difference in the classroom and beyond. See where their inquisitive minds take them.
