Inside Neuroscience

The field of neuroscience studies the human brain and nervous system and their biological functioning at the cellular and system levels when neurological processes occur. Some neuroscientists study non-human species or artificial intelligence. Neuroscience is a research-intensive field of study, encompassing psychology, physics, molecular biology, engineering, chemistry and math.

Education Information

Brick-and-mortar universities as well as virtual schools offer programs in neuroscience at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Bachelor's programs typically include courses in psychology, physiology, statistics, math, chemistry and biology. Students are encouraged to engage in research projects. Undergraduate programs prepare students for graduate studies, careers as technicians or entry-level positions in mental health or social services organizations.
