Neuroscience (Concentration Only)
Neuroscience is the study of the nervous system, seeking to understand not only the biology and chemistry of the brain and nervous system, but also how chemical and cellular functions relate to the thought processes and behavior of organisms.
Thus, neuroscience is founded on the tenet that an understanding of the brain and nervous system is only possible when approached from a perspective that integrates biological, chemical and psychological phenomena.
The neuroscience concentration at Denison is designed to offer students an interdisciplinary perspective on the nervous system and behavior, and an opportunity to obtain a diverse focus that both compliments and broadens the more narrowly-defined major. Majors in biology, chemistry, psychology, and computer science would be likely candidates to follow this interdisciplinary approach.
The neuroscience concentration must fulfill the following requirements:
