The Minor in Neuroscience Research expands opportunities for Temple students to get research experience and to become more competitive in their applications to graduate and professional schools. The required courses in the Neuroscience Research Minor focus on basic neuroscience, cellular and molecular neuroscience, and neuroscientific techniques. In addition to formal coursework, independent study resulting in a research project is required. The Neuroscience Research Project is a unique project developed over two semesters of independent study. The project is submitted in written form (research article format) and is presented to Neuroscience faculty members and graduate students as a poster. This project may not overlap with projects for other programs (e.g., Honors). Because of some overlap in coursework, the students must choose to minor in either the Neuroscience Research or the Cognitive Neuroscience minor.
