Why study neuroscience?
Neuroscience is the study of the brain and, ultimately, the study of what makes us human. The field of neuroscience is focused on some of the biggest scientific questions of our time: From unraveling the mysteries of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, to engineering innovative devices to improve mobility in people with spinal cord injuries, to understanding how our brains process sensory information from the world around us. Neuroscientists use a range of tools and techniques, including cellular biology, electrophysiology, behavioral science and computational biology. Neuroscience is an exciting, rapidly evolving field. Pursuing a degree in neuroscience will prepare students for careers in research, biotech, medicine, and even law.
