5 Course Concentrations >> Neurosciences

[Updated June 15, 2018 - added SYMSYS 266 as an ASSR option under area 5]

This concentration combines biological, cognitive, and computational approaches to neuroscience and neural modeling. Students should choose a total of five courses from at least three of the following six areas, with at least two courses coming from among the first two areas. Practical exposure to laboratory research in neuroscience is also highly recommended. See also the Stanford Neuroscience Program website. Courses cannot be double counted for both a concentration and the core, except in the case of the Advanced Small Seminar requirement. NOTE: Bold italicized courses have been approved as Advanced Small Seminar Options.
