The Department's commitment to the future of neuroscience is demonstrated by an outstanding graduate program that provides students with rigorous coursework and access to research experiences in laboratories across the University at both the Morningside and Medical Center campuses. Weekly seminars hosted by the Department are open to all students and fellows encouraging exposure to advancements in the greater scientific community. Additional opportunities are available for undergraduates and plans are underway to expand community outreach to increase public understanding of brain science and health.
