Turkey, officially the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country, located mostly on Anatolia in Western Asia and on East Thrace in Southeastern Europe.

The main goal of the doctoral training in Experimental Psychology is to provide students with a more elaborate and deeper understanding of human psychology through theoretical and empirical endeavor in core areas of psychological science such as behavioral and cognitive neuroscience, cognition, learning, memory, sensation and perception, biopsychology, electrophysiology, research methodology, statistics, computer programming and brain imaging. Throughout their graduate study, students will be expected to be actively involved in research. This includes completing a doctoral dissertation. Because of the commitment of the faculty in the experimental psychology program to collaborative, cross-disciplinary research, students often engage in research partnerships with faculty and students outside of their own areas of specialization. The Ph.D. program typically requires eight semesters to complete.
