Mission Statement

Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the structure, function, evolution, development and pathology of the nervous system in relation to behavior and mental life. Individuals working in this area examine issues from the very small (including molecular and cellular basis of neuronal function, nervous system structure, how systems of neurons process information) to the very large (how these functions are linked to behavior and give rise to conscious experience). The neuroscience minor at North Central College encourages students to approach understanding these topics from scientific and humanistic perspectives. This minor will prepare students to appreciate the fundamental workings of the nervous system and how it applies to human health and behavior.
