Neuroscience

Students pursuing a slash in Neuroscience will explore how the mind’s diverse sensory, motor, and cognitive phenomena are encoded by neural function at the cellular and systems level.

Neuroscience Area of Concentration

Students pursuing a slash in Neuroscience will explore how the mind’s diverse sensory, motor, and cognitive phenomena are encoded by neural function at the cellular and systems level. They will develop skills for critical inquiry in neuroscience through engagement with current principles, techniques, findings, and debates and ethical considerations within the field. As Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary area, students pursuing the Neuroscience slash should expect to approach their study of the brain with both breadth and depth, which will allow them to understand how the brain works from multiple perspectives. In doing so, students pursuing the Neuroscience slash will be prepared for a number of paths post-graduation, which may include graduate and professional work in related fields.
