Neuroscience

    Overview

    How the brain works is both fascinating and baffling. And there is still so much yet to be discovered about these living computers. This major will give you an understanding of how the nervous system is organised and how it functions: from the biology of nerve cells and neural circuits through to neural systems and complex behaviours.

    You'll also find out how modern neuroscience interacts with molecular and cell biology, physiology, psychology, and cognitive and information science. You can then take this knowledge and apply it to fields like drug development, behavioural research, brain imaging, or whatever other possibilities your brain can come up with.

    Neuroscience is one of the largest areas of study within the sphere of modern biology and Australian neuroscience research has significant international impact.

    You can study this major in the Bachelor of Biomedicine or the Bachelor of Science
