Great interest in Neuroscience at the Spring Open Day
The Neuroscience Stand was of great interest to the many transtion year students and their career guidance teachers who visited UCC for the annual Spring Open Day. Dr Yvonne Nolan Neuroscience course coordinator and volunteers from the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience were delighted with the interest shown by students and career guidance teachers in the BSc Neuroscience degree.
Spring Open day was held on Tuesday and Wednesday 16th and 17th May across the University to welcome transition year students to view the range of courses on offer in the region of 7,000 transition and fifth year students, from 100 schools, over the course of the two days. The feedback from Guidance Counsellors and students is very positive.

The BSc Neuroscience degree course is an interdisciplinary degree course organised by the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience, with significant contributions from a number of other Departments, this course covers the structural organisation, structure function relationships and development of the nervous system in the context of the human body as a whole. It is a rapidly expanding field of study and this course is intended to provide graduates with a thorough basic training in this area of ever increasing importance. Neuroscience is studied at the molecular, cell and systems level.
