We help students to build a network that will help them succeed both in University and post-graduation


Students will engage in aspects of neuroscience ranging from genes and molecules, to cells and synapses, to circuits, behaviour, and cognition.


We have a diverse research expertise on campus to explore the nervous system from molecular, cellular, sensory motor, physiological, and behavioural perspectives.


We focus on preparing students for their future studies and careers, whatever they may be.


Our small program allows for continued support for each student as an individual and to have students interact with our faculty and staff regularly


We seek to understand the biology and function of the nervous system at all levels of analysis.
