  • After selecting a research mentor at the end of the first year, neuroscience students may formally declare the Neuroscience Graduate Program as their academic track of choice. Beginning the second year, neuroscience students can choose elective courses which are designed to develop specialization and strength in one particular area of neuroscience.
  • Each neuroscience student is thus exposed to various situations where he or she learns how to express their ideas effectively. Throughout their training, neuroscience students have the opportunity to interact and work closely with facultyand to receive individualized attention that continues until degree completion
