Brain Science Courses at Brown

The institute is focused on promoting interdisciplinary research and courses are overseen by affiliated graduate programs and undergraduate concentrations. However, a number of courses taught by Institute faculty are interdisciplinary, and therefore help promote the goals of the institute.
