The University of Otago is the only New Zealand university to offer an undergraduate degree in Neuroscience.
Our neuroscientists apply a wide range of scientific disciplines, including anatomy, biochemistry, computer science, pharmacology, physiology, psychology and zoology.
As an interdisciplinary programme, it is taught by staff from varied departments across the University. Each teaches a separate “neuro” component, resulting in a coherent and integrated subject.
Neuroscientists at the University of Otago are involved in a range of exciting research. Neuroscience students learn about cutting edge research being conducted at Otago, as well as research from around the world, and can work in the lab with Otago's neuroscientists as postgraduates.
