Neuroscience students study the molecular, cellular, structural, and functional aspects of the nervous system. Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field of study that combines biology, psychology, chemistry, and other fields in an attempt to understand how the nervous system works. The neuroscience concentration will lead students through the fundamentals of the field, spanning the breadth from molecular signaling to human cognition and behavior. The core curriculum will give students the base knowledge necessary to explore the interdisciplinary field. The concentration is composed of two tracks—(1) Cellular Neuroscience and (2) Neuroscience, Cognition, and Behavior--each designed to meet the needs of students with diverse interests while providing rigorous, multidisciplinary preparation for medical school and graduate programs in areas such as neuroscience, biology, psychology, and behavioral medicine.
There are two tracks
Track one: Cellular Neuroscience
Track Two: Neuroscience, Cognition, and Behavior
