Thank you for your interest in supporting the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at the University of Delaware.
The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences provides students with an understanding of the principles of behavior, the scientific methods used to derive and refine those principles, and appropriate ways in which to apply such knowledge.
Your support will help students who participate in our research programs on bullying, early intervention, prenatal alcohol exposure, stereotyping, and more. Learn more about what your gifts will support.

Many companies match gifts of their employees. This is a great way to double or even triple your gift. Check with your company's Human Resources Department or visit our online database at www.matchinggifts.com/ud to find out if your employer matches gifts.
Undergraduate students in Dr. Julie Hubbard's laboratory gather data
from 4th- and 5th-grade children in both classroom and home settings.
The lab is working to bring evidence-based bullying prevention programming
to Delaware's schools by implementing and evaluating the KiVa Bullying
Prevention Program, an approach with proven efficacy in other countries
that is being tested for the first time in the US by this research
Undergraduate students in Dr. Mary Dozier's lab help supervise the
behavior of Master's and Ph.D. level clinicians all around the world. A
behavioral coding process ensures that even faraway therapists are
faithfully adhering to this lab's "Attachment and Biobehavioral
Catchup" intervention for neglecting parents and foster parents of young children.
The students use Adobe connect to video-conference with these
clinicians and provide supervision on "in the moment" comments
clinicians are expected to make.
The lab of Dr. Chad Forbes uses behavioral studies and neuroscience techniques to study how stereotypes bias the way we perceive ourselves and others,
which includes important questions like why some women disengage from
science and math careers over time. Students in the Forbes lab learn to
run behavioral studies and collect samples for genetic assays. They
learn to record EEG and startle responses, and learn to analyze
behavioral and brain data.
Undergraduate students in Dr. Jim Hoffman's lab learn to set up
eye-tracking devices, collect ERP (event-related brain potential) data,
and design and program the presentation of stimuli on a computer
monitor. The Hoffman lab uses EEG and ERP data to study the brain basis of emotion-induced blindness and visual attention. A new project involves using EEG measures to predict the recovery of consciousness in coma patients.
The Klintsova lab studies the effect of prenatal alcohol exposure on the
brain's hippocampus and prefrontal cortex using animal models. Students
in Dr. Anna Klintsova's lab learn essential neuroscience bench skills,
including brain sectioning, histochemistry and immunocytochemistry
staining techniques and microscopy analysis. Students conduct behavioral
studies to see the impact of alcohol in the development of fetuses during pregnancy.
Undergraduates in Dr. Jackie Schwarz's lab study developmental and sex differences in immune function and communication.
Students learn molecular biology techniques to study how infections can
shape gene expression. They help run animals in behavioral studies and
learn central neuroscience bench skills.
