Major for Neuroscience?

  1. Oct 24, 2005 #1
    I currently a Freshman in Biology and I'm interested in neuroscience. What should I major in: Biochemistry or Molecular and Cellular Biology? I'm leaning towards the latter but I'd like some help deciding. Thanks for the help :smile:

    Oh good, you made it easy...you're already leaning toward the latter, and I'd agree that's the better option given the current direction research in neurosciences is going. You don't NEED that emphasis as an undergraduate, but it'll be helpful. Also, look into some psychology courses (they may or may not be offered as part of the biology curriculum...if any are offered through the biology dept, those are definitely ones to consider).
