Welcome to UAB’s Department of Psychology

We are one of the largest undergraduate majors on campus, the home of three excellent graduate programs, and a center for cutting-edge research conducted by faculty and students working together.


Our lab's research is focused on better understanding the neural systems that mediate learning, memory, and emotion processes. Disruption of these processes appears to play a key role in the type of emotional dysfunction that characterizes mood and anxiety disorders.
