Neuroscience professor, Joel Bish took the lead from a UC soccer player, who desired to study concussion effects on student-athletes. Six years and 60 students-researchers later, this research is thriving.

Research Students in front of poster sessionSpecializing in engaged learning within a student-centered environment, the Ursinus Neuroscience program provides tangible experiences that transcend traditional classroom learning.  We strive to challenge our students by providing individualized opportunities to develop skills like critical thinking, technical writing, and oral presentation, all of which are necessary to become successful graduate students, researchers, and biomedical services practitioners.

In learning by doing, our students not only gain content knowledge, but also develop a sense of research and applied ethics, hone social and interpersonal skills, and discover leadership potential.

Our students put their education into practice by publishing and presenting at many regional and national symposiums.  Visit our Recent Student Achievement.
