The Neuroscience Concentration was introduced in spring 2006. This concentration will expose students to the major problems in the field of neuroscience and give them some experience in the various modes of inquiry that are used to solve these problems. The concentration provides students a unique opportunity to integrate diverse approaches and principles from across the natural sciences and beyond the natural sciences to address complex questions about the function of the nervous system. The core course is NRS 250 - Neuroscience: Foundations, Future, and Fallacies.
