Details on the Program in Neuroscience Curriculum may be found in the Graduate Student Handbook.
Students entering our program immediately begin working on research in the laboratory of their chosen major professor. First and second-year students take a series of required courses, and then there are a number of electives from which students may choose to complete their individual programs of study.
PCB 5845: Cell and Molecular Neuroscience
PSB 5341: Systems and Behavioral Neuroscience
PSB 5230C: Comparative Neuroanatomy with Laboratory
PSB 5057: Neuroscience Methods (aka Molecules to Behavior)
PSB 5077: Responsible Conduct of Research
PSY 6919: Research Design and Analysis (or equivalent)
Directed Individual Study: Two laboratory rotations, in addition to major professor’s laboratory, are required.
