Program Information
Faculty: Department of Neuroscience
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Neuroscience
Description Neuroscience is a multidisciplinary field, encompassing different aspects of psychology, biology, chemistry, neurophysiology, genetics and epidemiology. Members of the Department of Neuroscience are engaged in a range of research topics examining the function of the central nervous system in both normal and disease states, using state-of-the-art facilities for microscopy, histology, neurochemistry, behavioural analysis, electrophysiology and molecular genetic analysis. Students will have the opportunity to learn these valuable techniques, and develop research projects aimed at the elucidation of many aspects of brain functioning and associated mental health diseases, including addiction, depression, Parkinson's disease, obesity, dementia and traumatic injury. As human behaviour is also an important area of study, there are laboratories in which to conduct human research related to the flourishing relationship between neuroscience and health psychology. Graduates of our program are well qualified to seek careers in the public sector, pharmaceutical research, and academia.
