Students in the Neuroscience degree program learn directly from experts in the field about advances in genetic, cellular, molecular, cognitive and systems Neuroscience. By studying model organisms in the laboratory, students learn hands-on how the brain develops, how it is wired and how it functions. Through interactive lectures students explore how human behavior, addiction and many neurological illnesses can be explained at a cellular, genetic, & molecular level. Novel electives challenge students to apply Neuroscience to the understanding of memory, decision-making, artistic expression or how to develop better semiconductors or the control of robotic devices.
