About the Major


Neuroscience is the multidisciplinary study of the nervous system. A major in Neuroscience provides a broad background in this highly interdisciplinary scientific field, ranging from Molecular/Cellular to Circuits/Systems and to Cognitive/Behavioral Neuroscience. The major is administered by the Program in Fundamental Neuroscience (PFN), with courses offered within the Major (NESC), as well as in Biology, Psychology, and other departments. Students are encouraged to perform independent research in laboratories across the grounds and to proceed to the Distinguished Majors Program.
