Neuroscience is a broad term, which brings together diverse disciplines, with the common goal of seeking knowledge about the functioning of the nervous system, both in normal and pathological situations.

In recent years, neuroscience has incorporated techniques and methodologies traditionally associated with other areas of knowledge, becoming a truly multidisciplinary science. Today, we observe a steady increase in the number of scientific papers on behavior, learning and cognition using approaches that before were unique the areas of chemistry, mathematics, computing, engineering and philosophy.

This recent expansion of research tools has been fundamental in promoting new discoveries and in modifying the way we study and understand the functioning of the nervous system.

In order to promote the recent advances in the area, as well as contributing to the multidisciplinary training of students UFRN, the Brain Institute, in partnership with the School of Science and Technology, developed the axis of Neurosciences in the general education of the Bachelor of Science and Technology.

With an innovative curriculum that combines a solid basic training in mathematics, physics and chemistry to specific disciplines of neuroscience, this axis aims to develop skills and abilities at the interface between biological and technological areas.

Although offered within the curricular structure of the Bachelor of Science and Technology, the disciplines of neuroscience axis are open to all UFRN courses as electives or complementary.

The egress from the axis of Neuroscience will be a highly specialized professional in the area and able to join the Graduate Program in Neuroscience and related fields, as well as work in consulting, industry technology and service.
