Neuroscience - University of Leeds

Studying Neuroscience at the University of Leeds covers all major areas of neuroscience, from the molecular to the clinical/pathological, studying questions such as ‘what is consciousness?’ and ‘how do we form and store memories?’ On our undergraduate degree, you’ll study the disorders of the nervous system which underlie many current public health problems such as neurodegenerative diseases (Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s) and chronic pain. You’ll also carry out practicals, making single neuronal recordings in snail brains. Our integrated Masters offers you an additional year of specialist training. You’ll study advanced research topics and undertake an extended research project. **Make an Impact** Neuroscience studies the brain and the nerves that make up the nervous system. The brain controls all bodily activities, ranging from heart rate and sexual function to emotion, learning and memory. In fact, the brain is what makes us human. Studying Neuroscience will take you on an amazing journey through the structure and function of neurones and the way they communicate within the nervous system. **Course highlights:** - A wide range of research-led optional modules includes Cellular Cardiology, Introduction to Toxicology, Chemotherapy and Introduction to Genetics. - Practical work extensive hands-on experience in with practical labs such as making single neuronal recordings in snail brains. - Recent final year projects have included: 'Human neurophysiology (EEG) and cutaneous sensitivity testing - understanding how we perceive pain.' and 'Functional analysis of candidate genetic risk factors for brain disorders'
