Understanding how the brain functions in both health and disease is one of the great challenges of this century. Such studies are vital as we seek to better understand and treat neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's disease and neurological disorders such as epilepsy.
Modern neuroscience is not an isolated discipline. It integrates the inputs of, for example, biochemistry, physiology, pharmacology, pathology, psychology and psychiatry to address the normal and abnormal functioning of the nervous system.
Our course emphasises such inputs, and offers a balance between molecular and cellular aspects of the subject and systems and clinical neuroscience.
