Program Information

School:McGill University
Faculty:Faculty of Science
Field of Study:Neurobiology and Neurophysiology
Description:Nervous systems are perhaps the most complex entities in the natural world, being composed of up to trillions of interconnected cells that must operate in a coordinated manner to produce behaviour which can range from the mundane (e.g., regulation of heart rate) to the magnificent (e.g., musical composition).

The discipline of Neurobiology, one of the fastest growing areas of modern biology, seeks to understand the evolution, development, and operation of nervous systems. The Neurobiology concentration addresses these issues by examining neural structure, function and development at levels of organization that range from the molecular to the organismal.
