Welcome to the Graduate Program in Neuroscience
@ the University of Western Ontario

The University of Western Ontario offers students the opportunity to pursue graduate studies in the interdisciplinary field of Neuroscience. Western's new program is unique within the province of Ontario in that it enables students to obtain an M.Sc. or Ph.D specifically in Neuroscience.

The Program is designed for students with a variety of interests and backgrounds. These can include such areas as computer science, mathematics, engineering, chemistry and physics as well as the more traditional areas of anatomy, pharmacology, psychology, physiology, zoology, neurology, ophthalmology and physical therapy. The M.Sc. program provides a strong foundation in Neuroscience, while the Ph.D program builds on this foundation and develops the research skills necessary for a career in Neuroscience.

The Program offers research training in a variety of areas including neural substrates of behavior, neurophysiology, neural development, neuropharmacology, neuroanatomy and cellular and molecular biology. Students are able to select supervisors from over 50 core members of the Program, consisiting of scientists drawn from the Faculties of Science, Social Science, Health Sciences and the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry. These include the departments of Anatomy and Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Clinical Neurological Sciences, Oncology, Ophthalmology, Oral Biology, Pathology, Physiology and Pharmacology, Physical Rehabilitation, Psychiatry, Psychology, Physical Therapy, and Zoology.

The University of Western Ontario campus is scenically situated on a large (375 acre) rolling campus which lies on the outskirts of the resedential area of London, Ontario (pop. 300,000). The University received its charter and 1878 and is one of Canada's large and well-established centers of higher education with an enrollment of over
