BNS courses

The core curriculum includes three courses on neuroscience fundamentals, as well as courses in scientific computing and critical thinking skills. Many elective courses are available, and are usually taken in the second or third year of the program; note that not every course is offered every year, so please consult with the instructor and/or the program director to plan which courses you can take.
