Neuroscience is the study of the structure and function of the nervous system. The field has emerged over the past two decades as one of the fastest-growing fields within the biomedical community, attracting people from many different natural sciences disciplines.
The study of mind and brain is arguably the most exciting scientific enterprise of our time. Understanding the nervous system provides key insights into human nature as well as treatments for a host of devastating neurologic and psychiatric disorders. CNUP trainees at all levels explore fundamental issues and experimental approaches in neuroscience, and hone their skills in the theory and practice of laboratory research.
