The human brain is the inner universe through which all external events are perceived. That fact alone should ensure that Neuroscience will eventually receive a top priority in the list of human endeavors. During the century, one of the most fundamental questions to rise in the emergent field of Neuroscience is how an assembly of neurons becomes a functioning brain.
The studying program is designed to prepare well-qualified students to become research scientists who can assume positions in academic institutions, universities, government and industry.
Neuroscience is a multidisciplinary subject, requiring the integration of results from experimental studies in Neurophysiology, Neuroanatomy, Molecular Neurobiology, Neurochemistry, Neuropharmacology, Development and Behavior, as well as theoretical studies of Computational Neuronal Models and Neural Networks.
