About the Program

Neuroscience provides a comprehensive and rigorous exploration of the nervous system, examining the functions of molecules, cells and networks as they contribute to the development of complete behavioral and cognitive functions. This field encompasses multiple levels of biological organization ranging from molecular mechanisms of cellular physiology to complex behavior and cognitive processing. At W&M, you will master fundamental concepts through coursework in several departments and then fine-tune your interests through advanced courses such as applied cellular neuroscience, molecular neuroscience and psychopharmacology.
