Description

How the brain functions is one of the great questions in science, and how to fix it when it goes wrong is one of the great challenges for humanity. Our intercalated Neuroscience BSc course will give you an insight into how medical science is attempting to address this challenge. You will look in detail at the nervous system and its function, development and disease. You will benefit from lectures and seminars delivered by experts from departments within the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN) and the Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine (FoLSM), as well as visiting lecturers from outside the college, many of whom are the leaders in their fields.

There are three pathways to achieving your intercalated Neuroscience BSc: a Laboratory-based research option; a Neuroscience and Neuropsychology option, which includes a research project; and a library-based research project option, which offers a greater range and flexibility of lecture-based modules, including a module on research project design and/or a laboratory practical module.
