In the past decade, neuroscience — the multidisciplinary study of the nervous system — has been one of the most rapidly expanding field of science. In recognition of the recent growth in York University's neuroscience faculty, infrastructure and research, York is now offering a graduate diploma in Neuroscience.

The discipline ranges from research on molecular and cellular mechanisms in nerve cells and the relationship between the elements of neural systems, to the study of behaviour of whole organisms. York has more than 25 neuroscience professors, employing diverse approaches to neuroscience, including computational modeling, event-related potentials, brain imaging (fMRI, PET, MEG), animal neurophysiology, psychophysics, kinematics, transcranial magnetic stimulation, and molecular and cellular techniques. Opportunities for local and international collaborations with hospitals and other universities are also available.
