U of G introduces neuroscience major

The University of Guelph is introducing a new undergraduate major in neuroscience.

The U of G Senate recently approved the interdisciplinary B.Sc. honours major. The program brings together scientists from the departments of Biomedical Sciences, Human Health and Nutritional Sciences, Molecular and Cellular Biology, and Psychol- ogy to offer innovative courses and research opportunities in molecular, cellular, behavioural and cognitive neuroscience.

“The structure and functions of the brain are incredibly complex,” says Prof. Francesco Leri, chair of the Department of Psychology. “Through this new major, we’ll help unshroud some of the mystery that surrounds them.”

The first cohort of students in the neuroscience major will begin in September 2017.
