  • Objectives
    Neuroscience is a dynamic academic discipline that includes physiological, anatomical, biochemical, and behavioural studies of the nervous system. The main aim of neuroscience is to determine the neuronal (including the neurochemical & hormonal) processes that govern brain-related normal and abnormal behaviours, and sensory processes.

    Program Requirements

        * Fulfilment of the requirements of the master's program of either Psychology or Biology Department;
        * Successful completion of PSYC 5200 (BIOL 5304);
        * Thesis research must concern a neuroscience topic and be supervised by a member of the Institute.

    PSYC 5200 [1.0 credit] (BIOL 5304)
        Basics of Neuroscience
        A comprehensive neuroscience course from cellular levels to neural systems and behaviours presented through a series of seminars and colloquia. Topics will include aspects of neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neuro-pharmacology and behavioural and cognitive neuroscience. Also listed as PSY 6201 at the University of Ottawa.

    PSYC 6202 [0.5 credit] (BIOL 6305)
        Advanced Seminar in Neuroscience I
        A comprehensive pro-seminar series, covering issues ranging from cellular and molecular processes through to neural systems and behaviours as well as psychopathology.
        Precludes additional credit for PSYC 6200 [1.0].
        Prerequisite: PSYC 5200.

    PSYC 6203 [0.5 credit] (BIOL6306)
        Advanced Seminar in Neuroscience II

        A comprehensive proseminar series, covering issues ranging from cellular and molecular processes through to neural systems and behaviours as well as psychopathology.
