Neuroscience


By admin - Posted on 02 February 2009

Neuroscience is offered as a Specialist program and as a Major program.

Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field that aims to understand the brain and nervous system through the integration of research at the molecular, cellular and organismal levels and across various stages of development, maturation, and aging. The translation of neuroscience has important implications for understanding healthy human behaviour and for promoting the development of effective strategies for diagnosing and treating nervous system disorders.

The objective of the Neuroscience program is to provide students with a solid foundation in the interdisciplinary field of neuroscience and to facilitate the integration of concepts from across the life sciences, social sciences and humanities. In addition, students will gain experience with quantitative approaches, and develop effective communication skills to provide an appropriate background essential to research and problem solving in this field.
