Neuroscience is an exciting interdisciplinary field of study that investigates all aspect of brain structure and function. Borrowing techniques from molecular biology, biochemistry, electrophysiology, anatomy, psychology, neurology, and biomedical engineering, among other disciplines, neuroscience explores how the brain and its component cells work to create our thoughts, perceptions, and behaviours.
Our undergraduate program allows students to delve into the mysteries of the mind under the tutelage of some of the world's leading scientists. Incorporating classes from neuroscience, psychology, physiology, pharmacology, biology, and chemistry, our undergraduates learn about how healthy and diseased brains function at the cellular and molecular level and how concerted activity at the systems level are the foundation for cognition. Moreover, we take our students out of the class and into the lab, as all Honors Neuroscience students get hands-on research experience in the laboratories of faculty members in the Institute.
The Institute offers the BSc Honours in Neuroscience program through the Faculty of Science.
