Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field of study that employs the tools and perspectives of biology, psychology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and medicine to achieve a better understanding of brain structure, brain function, behavior, and the mind. The Department of Neuroscience at Oberlin College provides opportunities for students to use multiple approaches at many levels of analysis including molecular, cellular, systems, and behavioral levels.
