Our BSc Neuroscience course examines how the brain and nervous system work to generate behaviour, perception, movement, thought, memory and other key functions. New molecular approaches are using a wide range of knowledge and experimental techniques to advance our knowledge of membrane receptor structure and make remarkable progress towards understanding neural development. There have also been major advances in our understanding of the biology of higher brain function and the pathogenesis of a variety of neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. You will study a range of topics during the course, including biology, pharmacology, motor systems and more, with the opportunity to choose optional units in particular areas of interest. You will spend your first year studying fundamental principles before going on to specialise in your second and final years.
