Program summary

Neuroscience encompasses aspects of a variety of disciplines that have the common goal of understanding how the nervous system works. Techniques from constituent disciplines like anatomy, biochemistry, molecular biology, pharmacology, physiology, psychology and zoology are used to unravel some of the mysteries of the brain and its mechanisms of action, including dysfunctions. The program places past and current clinical and research perspectives into focus, with particular emphasis on the latest innovative cutting edge technology and novel research techniques to prepare students for exciting careers in both clinical and research settings.

The Specialist program in Neuroscience is a research-intensive program designed to provide students with strong breadth in the major domains of neuroscience, as well as an opportunity to intensively focus on one of the following three streams:

  • Cellular/Molecular Stream

  • Cognitive Stream

  • Systems/Behavioural Stream
