Neuroscience is all about understanding how the brain and wider nervous system works, and is one of the fastest growing areas of science. The University of Otago is the only New Zealand university to offer an undergraduate degree in Neuroscience. Neuroscientists apply a wide range of scientific disciplines, including Anatomy, Biochemistry, Computer Science, Pharmacology, Physiology, Psychology, and Zoology. As an interdisciplinary programme, Neuroscience is taught by staff from many departments. Each teaches a separate “neuro” component, with the result being a coherent and integrated subject. Taking chemistry and biology to Year 13 is recommended. Students without good marks in chemistry are strongly advised to enrol in the Bridging Chemistry paper during Summer School, prior to their first year of study.
