Neuroscience is the study of the brain and nervous system and how they work to generate behaviour, perception, movement, thought, memory and other key functions. These studies call on a wide range of knowledge and experimental techniques. New molecular approaches are advancing our knowledge of membrane receptor structure and giving remarkable progress towards understanding neural development. There have also been major advances in our understanding of the biology of higher brain function and the pathogenesis of a variety of neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease.
You will spend your first year studying fundamental principles before going on to specialise in your second and final years.
Fees for entry in 2017 have not yet been set. For entry in 2016 the tuition fees were £9,000 per annum for home/EU students, and are expected to increase slightly for 2017 entry.
