Neuroscience is one of the most exciting and fastest growing research fields. Examining the development and function of nervous systems does not only hold the key to better understand the interaction of animals and human beings with their environments, but will also allow us to develop therapeutic strategies for the treatment of neurological, behavioral and psychiatric disorders.

At the University of Chicago, there are four closely interacting, interdepartmental graduate programs that study nervous systems, brain function, and behavior: the PhD Programs in Neurobiology, Computational Neuroscience, Integrative Neuroscience, and Computational Cognitive Neuroscience (Psychology track). Combined, these four programs form the Neuroscience Cluster which comprises over 90 faculty members from both basic research and clinical departments.
