Study neuroscience to start unravelling the mysteries of the human brain. We offer neurology and neuroscience courses to help you gain a deeper understanding of the brain and nervous system.

With a neuroscience major, you’ll learn how this critical field links biology, medical physics, and physiology with psychophysiology and neuroimaging.

We host the only single-site neuroimaging facility that offers magnetoencephalography (MEG) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for research students.
