American University Neuroscience

American University  Neuroscience Neuroscience at American University

A major initiative at American University is to develop research and training opportunities in Neuroscience. In 2014, a new undergraduate major in Neuroscience was successfully launched. Together with our long established PhD program in Neuroscience (BCaN), these programs will train future scientists prepared to address the major questions in neuroscience, now and in the future. In addition to these two programs, American University established the Center for Behavioral Neuroscience, a unique interdisciplinary research and training environment that promotes excellence in the study of brain function and its manifestation in behavior. Neuroscience is thriving at American University!
