Neuroscience Major


This interdisciplinary program is coordinated by the Departments of Biology, Physiology, and Psychology and focuses on how the nervous system functions, from its specialized molecules and signaling to its intricate organization and generation of complex behaviour.

Because Neuroscience is such a vast discipline, students follow one of three streams: Cell / Molecular, Neurophysiology / Neural Computation, or Cognitive / Behavioural - and have considerable flexibility in choosing from a wide array of upper level courses in areas of neuroscience that best suit their interest. Students may also undertake an independent research project supervised by a neuroscientist.
