Neuroscience – the science of the brain

Neuroscience is the study of the nervous system: the brain and its networks of neurons responsible for our thoughts, feelings and actions.

In the Neuroscience programme, students study the nervous system from structure to function, development to degeneration, in health and in disease. You'll be taught by internationally recognised neuroscientists engaged in cutting-edge neuroscience research activity across the University.

The University of Otago is the only New Zealand university to offer an undergraduate degree in Neuroscience.
