Students entering the Neuroscience Program at Brandeis University have opportunities to work in a range of fields, from cognitive neuroscience to the structure and function of ion channels. Brandeis University is an exciting place for Neuroscience research and study because we have an outstanding and highly interactive research community.


The Neuroscience at Brandeis University laboratories are housed within the Volen Center and adjoining buildings, and this close proximity facilitates the high degree of collaboration and exchange for which Brandeis has become famous. There are presently 26 Neuroscience faculty found in four participating departments (Biology, Biochemistry, Psychology, and Chemistry).

The programme

The undergraduate concentration in neuroscience is designed to provide an interdisciplinary program of study of the neural mechanisms involved in the control of human or animal behavior.
