The Neuroscience BSc offers an integrated understanding of the human nervous system including its development and anatomy, biochemistry, physiology and pharmacology. Students will study the interplay between genes and the environment that influences all neural functions spanning from development of the nervous system to its adaptation with learning and alteration in disease. In the first two years, a comprehensive programme of core topics in neuroscience, together with study of human biomedical sciences, will enable students to explore selected topics of interest and excitement in the field and undertake original neuroscience research in the third year. Topics that students may wish to study in electives include modules focusing specifically on translational neuroscience such as biomarker discovery and drug development for psychiatric and neurologic diseases, brain tumour biology, and themes in biological psychology such as cognitive and affective neuroscience.
