Neuroscience

Are you interested in the function of the nervous system in animals and humans? The neuroscience minor allows students who are unable to major in the NPB neuroscience track to learn about the importance of the nervous system. The large breadth of neuroscience courses available include molecular and cellular neurobiology, developmental neurobiology, neurobiology of addictive drugs, and cell signaling in health and disease. Students who obtain a neuroscience minor would be able to demonstrate knowledge of the neurobiological processes in animals and humans.
