Because graduate programs in Neuroscience-related fields are diverse in their focus and prerequisites, students interested in graduate study in Neuroscience should work closely with their advisors to ensure that they have met all prerequisites for graduate programs of their choice, which may not be exactly the same as what is required to complete a Neuroscience slash.
