Students entering the Neuroscience Program
at Brandeis have opportunities to work in a range of fields,
from cognitive neuroscience to the structure and function
of ion channels. 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 and adjoining buildings, and this close proximity
facilitates the high degree of collaboration and exchange
for which Brandeis has become famous. There are presently
26 Neuroscience faculty found in four participating departments
(Biology, Biochemistry, Psychology, and Chemistry).
The undergraduate concentration in neuroscience is designed
to provide an interdisciplinary program of study of the
neural mechanisms involved in the control of human or animal
behavior. The concentration combines a strong foundation
in basic science with more specialized courses in biology
and psychology. This program is especially appropriate for
students wishing to pursue further study in medicine, experimental
psychology, or neuroscience.
