Biopsychology is the branch of neuroscience concerned with how the brain and the nervous system control behaviour. Biopsychology is a rapidly developing research area that includes all aspects of the structure and function of the nervous systems and involves a variety of experimental strategies aimed at improving our understanding of nervous systems, (biology) and their relationship to behaviour (psychology).

Knowledge obtained from research in biopsychology is increasingly being applied to a variety of health problems including stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinsonism, and a wide variety of drug-or injury-induced behavioral and cognitive disorders.

This program will prepare you for further studies in neuroscience, psychology, medicine, speech pathology, communication disorders, and related fields.
