Psychology: Neuroscience

Using an interdisciplinary approach, neuroscientists seek to understand the organization, development and function of the brain and nervous system, while also developing an understanding of the psychological responses-like behavior, cognition and emotion-these systems perform. By studying these normal brain processes, neuroscientists also hope to better understand the many devastating neurological and psychiatric disorders. At Emmanuel, students interested in neuroscience often pursue significant applied opportunities in diverse academic areas including psychology, biology, chemistry, statistics, physics and genetics.
