    There are numerous research facilities available to faculty and students including: laboratories in human memory and cognition, social and cognitive development, endocrinology, visual psychophysics, auditory behavior, electrophysiology, and visual neurophysiology; a micro-computer room; and observational facilities for social and developmental psychological research. Animal spaces and facilities are also conveniently housed in Young Hall.

    The campus-wide community is also a rich source of research and instructional opportunities for our students. Examples include the California Regional Primate Research Center (one of seven major centers in the country for the study of primate biology), the Center for Neuroscience, the UC Davis Medical Investigation of Neurodevelopmental Disorders Institute (UC Davis M.I.N.D. Institute), Center for Mind and Brain, the Center for Child and Family Studies, and the Women's Resources and Research Center, to name a few. The Sacramento Zoo, a short distance from the campus, is another setting for research activity.

    Excellent opportunities for interdisciplinary research are also available in conjunction with campus professional schools of Medicine, Law, and Veterinary Medicine.
