Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field of study, which examines the nervous system and advances the understanding of human thought, emotion and behavior. Objectives of neuroscientists include: describing the human brain and how it functions normally, determining how the nervous system develops, matures and maintains itself throughout the lifespan, and finding ways to prevent, cure or treat symptoms of many debilitating neurological, psychiatric and developmental disorders. Neuroscience may integrate such disciplines as biology, chemistry, psychology, computer science, mathematics, statistics, exercise science and philosophy. This minor will help provide students with the fundamental knowledge and training needed to pursue careers and post-graduate studies in fields related to cognitive science, behavioral medicine, human development and aging, health and disease, rehabilitation, biomedical research, human-machine interactions and many other emerging disciplines. A minimum of 24 semester hours is required.
