Brain: The Final Frontier
The nervous system and neural control of behavior is a growing area for study in the life sciences. Cellular Neuroscience is a focal area in the Department of Biological Sciences and Behavioral Neuroscience is a focal area in the Department of Psychology.
At the undergraduate level an interest in neuroscience can be followed through the Interdepartmental Minor in Neuroscience. At the graduate level an interest can be followed within either of the two departments. The Center for Neuroscience Research focuses on interactions among neuroscientests at the University and at surrounding institutions.
