Field of Study:Neuroscience
Description:Neuroscience is the study of the brain and how it affects human behaviour on an individual basis. One of the most basic facts in Neuroscience is that "You are your brain." This rapidly expanding discipline aims to solve the mysteries of the brain's functionality by better understanding its resilient capacity for consciousness, perception, memory and learning.

As a student of Neuroscience, you will be exposed to the razor's edge of neurological discoveries, learning from the country's most renowned leaders in the field. You will gain in-depth knowledge about the brain's functionality, as well as the methods and concepts used to uncover its many secrets. The primary focus of this multidisciplinary program is to enhance your technical and practical skills with extensive theoretical knowledge in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Psychology, Philosophy and other related areas. With an emphasis on neurological disorders, the program will also give you hands-on experience using the latest instruments, technology and research findings. Students majoring in neuroscience have a number of opportunities available to them including co-operative education, international exchanges, independent and applied studies as well as volunteer opportunities.
