Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Program Requirements

Neuroscience is a multidisciplinary study of the brain and its functioning. It is a new discipline that has grown out of modern needs to solve practical medical problems as well as address the continuing human desire to discover more about ourselves. Neuroscientists are interested in questions such as: “What is mind?” “Why do we sleep?” “Why do people feel emotions?” “What causes Alzheimer’s Disease?” “What happens in the brain when we learn?” and “How does the brain organize itself before birth?” Individuals or groups of persons, with multidisciplinary training best address these challenging questions. Neuroscience is now a unified field that integrates Psychology, Biology, Chemistry, and several other traditional disciplines in the study of brain structure, physiology and behavior - including human emotional and cognitive functions.
