About

Studying BSc Neuroscience from University of Bristol will enable you to explore the workings of the brain from molecules to neural systems. Answering questions such as: how do neurones communicate with each other to lay down memories? What goes wrong in neuropsychiatric disorders such as Parkinson’s and schizophrenia? How do we feel pain?

Overview

Your knowledge will build from studying core units in years one and two to studying selected, in-depth courses in your final year.

For example, second-year in the Neuroscience programme from University of Bristol units explore many aspects of neuroscience, including the neurophysiology of the central nervous system; the pharmacology of drugs that affect the nervous system; and the techniques that have enabled advances in understanding the nervous system.

Outcome

Final-year units are run at the forefront of current research and include subjects such as synaptic plasticity and brain and behaviour, as well as studying specialised topics, such as neuropsychiatric diseases. You will also spend 30 days on a research project.

Practical teaching is enhanced with our innovative online dynamic lab manual, eBiolabs.

This course is available for intercalation.
