The Field of Neuroscience

Human BrainThe brain lies at the core of human experience. It controls the smile of a baby, the complex calculations of an Albert Einstein, the rage of a criminal, and the coordinated movements of an athlete. Neuroscience is the scientific study of the brain and nervous system, in health and disease. As such, it promises to be the humanities of the next millennium.

Scientific study of the brain requires the skills of many different disciplines. Thus, this major is interdisciplinary and interdepartmental. The faculty are biologists, psychologists, biochemists, mathematicians, and engineers, all of whom share a fascination with the function of the brain. The brain is studied at many different levels, including the molecular and cellular levels, the level of systems of neurons, and at the behavioral level.
