The neuroscience major is designed to offer a breadth of courses that are divided
into two categories. Learning about the physical properties of the nervous system
provides an appreciation for the cellular and molecular mechanisms at play. Exploring
the emergent properties of the nervous system helps one to understand how the system's
physical properties combine to allow for incredible feats such as learning, memory,
consciousness, and other behaviors. As a neuroscience major, you will take courses
in both categories.
