University of St Andrews

Content

Neuroscience is the science of the nervous system and involves studying how the brain and the rest of the nervous system work in health and disease. Neuroscience is taught closely between the School of Biology and the School of Psychology and Neuroscience and emphasises understanding how the mind and brain work to facilitate our behaviour.

Students of Neuroscience at St Andrews receive a broad education ranging from the level of single proteins within the nervous system and the activity of individual nerve cells, up to higher brain functions such as memory formation and cognitive processing.
