Course Info:

The Department of Neurobiology brings together a group of faculty who do research and instruction with the mission of understanding how nervous systems work. The Neurobiology major provides an interdisciplinary study of the nervous system, with the ultimate goal to understand higher brain function in health and disease. The nervous system can be studied at multiple levels of analysis including molecular and cellular biology, electrophysiology, brain systems, behavior and cognition, and computational network modeling. The major is designed to combine fundamental courses in biology, neurophysiology, and cellular neurobiology, with the option for students to tailor their neurobiology studies toward particular areas of interest. Graduates are prepared for advanced study in biological sciences, particularly neuroscience, medicine, business or law, writing and publishing, government and policy, global health, as well as professions in education and biotechnology.
