About Neuroscience

Students will gain an understanding of the organization of the nervous system as well as an appreciation of the interdisciplinary nature of neuroscience and the study of mind, brain, and behavior. Courses offered will allow students to explore the interaction between neural structure and function via the brain’s relation to behaviors such as motor control, basic  sensory processes (e.g., audition, proprioception, and vision), higher cognition (e.g., attention, memory, learning and language) and emotional processing. Major theories of brain-behavior relations will be studied. Several of these topics include behavioral neuroscience and learning, perception, and cognitive neuroscience.
