Centre for Neuroscience

Welcome to the Brock University Centre for Neuroscience, a unique transdisciplinary program.

Neuroscience, the study of behaviour and its underlying neural mechanisms, is studied in psychology, biology and other departments at many different universities; however, there is an increased tendency in North America and Europe to offer neuroscience as a specialized major program. The Neuroscience program at Brock offers the choice of five different streams which combine selected courses from various disciplines (e.g. psychology, biology, kinesiology) that address behavioural, cellular, molecular and physiological approaches to examining the nervous system.

The program is specifically designed to permit integration of information derived experimentally from many disciplines to gain a better understanding of the relationships between nervous function and behaviour. The Neuroscience program provides information and skills necessary for many different careers in the health and behavioural sciences. It also provides a firm basis for graduate studies in the neurosciences and other related scientific disciplines.
