Studying Neuroscience at Regis
The minor in neuroscience studies the nervous system and how it regulates behavior. Neuroscience is an exciting and challenging interdisciplinary field in which scientists share a common interest in studying the anatomy, physiology, and function of the nervous system.
The minor in neuroscience begins the study of the nervous system and how it regulates behavior. Students minoring in neuroscience study questions such as: How do we learn, remember and process information? How do we move and respond to stimuli in our environment? How do drugs affect our brains? What are the underlying causes of neurological disorders such as depression, schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson's Disease? How does the brain respond to traumatic injury? These questions begin our understanding of the nervous system and how it impacts our daily lives.
