Welcome to the Developmental, Cognitive, and Affective Sciences Program!
As Director of the Developmental, Cognitive, and Affective Sciences (DCAS) Program at Case Western Reserve University, I would like to welcome you. Whether this is your first exposure or you have a lot of experience in psychology, there has never been a more exciting time to be in Developmental, Cognitive, and Affective Sciences. Important questions are being answered by DCAS psychologists all over the world, including here at Case Western Reserve University. Why is now such a good time? The tools we have available to use are more powerful now than at any time in the past. Available tools include fMRI, average evoked potentials, new and informative assessment tools, and statistical techniques that have not been possible until recently. We are entering into a golden age of Developmental, Cognitive, and Affective Sciences, and you should be excited to be a part of it. Whether your interests lie in developmental psychology, cognitive psychology, affective neuroscience, behavioral genetics, intelligence, or developmental disorders, the DCAS program at Case Western Reserve University is the place to be.
Contact me, Dr. Elizabeth J Short, Director of the DCAS program or any of our top notch faculty for more information.
