The Learning Environment
Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary subject incorporating courses from various departments across the university. Required courses are taught by faculty in participating departments with neuroscience expertise at any of UB’s three campus locations (North, South, and Downtown).
About Our Facilities
Students will complete coursework and/or interact with faculty from all three UB campuses (North, South, and Downtown):
- The Department of Biological Sciences is housed and holds classes throughout the North Campus in Cooke and Hochstetter Halls, which includes traditional classrooms and lecture halls.
- The Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology conducts classes on the South and Downtown Campuses. Students have the opportunity to learn in traditional classroom environments from a range of faculty with neuroscience expertise.
- The Department of Psychology houses offices and research labs (located in Park Hall and Hochstetter Hall) allowing faculty and students to conduct a wide variety of experiments utilizing cognitive, affective, behavioral, neurological, and psychophysiological measurements
- UB has research facilities within a block’s radius of the downtown building that houses the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, providing tremendous opportunity for collaborations and resource sharing, include the Research for Institute on Addictions, the New York State Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences, and the Clinical and Translational Research Center.
