DIBS centers represent core areas of research and interest within DIBS. DIBS centers have significant faculty involvement in collaborative research and scholarship, as well as educational programs.
The Center for Cognitive Neuroscience (CCN) serves as Duke University’s portal for research, education and advanced training in the psychological, computational and biological mechanisms of higher mental function, all from an interdisciplinary perspective. The Center assembles faculty from a variety of areas of study across the University, including arts and sciences, medicine, engineering and business. Research focuses on areas such as decision-making, social cognition, and the evolution and development of mental processes. Beyond the classroom, CCN programs include weekly seminar and lecture series. The Center for Cognitive Neuroscience is administered by the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences.
The Center on Addiction and Behavior Change (CABC) at Duke aims to translate basic research advances in brain and behavioral science into effective prevention, early intervention and treatment of addiction and other behavior disorders. The CABC is administered by the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences.
The Duke Center for Autism and Brain Development works to provide exceptional, compassionate care to families so that each individual with autism will realize his or her fullest potential and to expand our impact through education, innovative research, and public policy.
The Duke Center for Interdisciplinary Decision Science (D-CIDES) brings Duke University’s diverse strengths in the decision sciences – including behavioral economics, judgment and decision making, marketing, neuroeconomics, medical decision making and addiction – into a single community for programs, education and new research collaborations. Core D-CIDES programs include ongoing speaker series, funding for postdoctoral fellows, student travel awards and affiliated coursework. D-CIDES is jointly affiliated with the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences and Duke’s Social Science Research Institute.
