Neuroscience, the scientific study of the nervous system, is an inherently interdisciplinary pursuit. At Northeastern, we draw upon such academic fields as psychology; chemistry and chemical biology; physics; biology and marine science; electrical and computer engineering; speech language pathology and audiology; and pharmaceutical sciences to break new ground in the exciting realm of neurobiological research.
Our University strives to eliminate the barriers that exist among academic disciplines, cultivating an environment in which students, graduate students, faculty and professionals work collaboratively to generate new knowledge.
Julia Ebert, a third-year behavioral neuroscience major, has been awarded a prestigious Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship. The merit-based scholarship is awarded annually to 300 college sophomores and juniors nationwide who are studying science, engineering, or mathematics. Scholarship nominees must demonstrate prior experience in a research setting and submit a proposal to the Foundation Board of Trustees based on work that has advanced their field of study and furthered their career objectives. http://www.northeastern.edu/news/2013/04/honors-student-named-goldwater-scholar/
