Neuroscience is a huge growth area as new techniques are developed that are unravelling the complexities of the nervous system from molecular to behavioural aspects.
You will be provided with the opportunity to spend an academic year in a research-led teaching institution in which neuroscience is a burgeoning area. The modules that you study reflect the increasing applications of molecular biology, genetics and psychopharmacology to understanding the nervous system.
