Brandeis University is an exciting place for Neuroscience research and study because we have an outstanding and highly interactive research community. The Neuroscience laboratories are housed within the Volen Center, the Shapiro Science Center and adjoining buildings, and this close proximity facilitates the high degree of collaboration and exchange for which Brandeis has become famous. There are presently 23 Neuroscience faculty found in four participating departments (Biology, Biochemistry, Psychology, and Chemistry). There are today over 45 Neuroscience Program Ph.D. students, who often work side-by-side with Ph.D. students in the other Life Sciences graduate programs at Brandeis.

The Brandeis Life Sciences offers a M.S. program and a Ph.D. program in Neuroscience.
