Our program brings together scientists from diverse disciplines committed to teaching and research aimed at understanding the mind, brain, and functions of the nervous system. Neuroscience encompasses multiple levels of biological organization ranging from molecular mechanisms of cellular physiology to complex behavior and cognitive processing. This comprehensive understanding includes comparative, evolutionary, and computational approaches to the neuroscience of the human personality, society, and disease.
Neuroscience is a formalized program within the interdisciplinary studies major. Students wishing to declare their major in Neuroscience should contact Professor Porter in the Psychology Department for advising.
