Over the last three decades neuroscience has become a truly integrative science, from the molecule to the systems level and beyond, encompassing normal human brain function as well as the biological mechanisms underlying brain diseases. The aim of the minor Biomolecular Science and Neuroscience track Neurosciences is to offer students in-depth knowledge of Biomolecular Science and Neuroscience. Students will gain insight into the latest knowledge of experimental cell biology during the first two courses of the minor (Experimental Cell Biology I and II) and focus on mechanisms of brain function in health and disease in the three Neuroscience courses.
The Neuroscience track of the Minor Biomolecular Science and Neuroscience is tailored to highly motivated students that plan to pursue a career in Neuroscience. This track is recommended for students who plan to enroll in the Master Neuroscience.
