let's get WIRED

The brain’s cells make hundreds of connections, wiring different regions together. These connections help us form memories, shape our personality, and regulate our normal functions.

So help your brain figure out if the Neuroscience major is right for you.

Support for Agnes Scott Neuroscience Majors

Your success is our goal. We want your education to help you get to your dream career. To that end, there are places for academic help as well as interest groups you can explore! We have also established a brain bank for comparative anatomy studies. In our introductory Neuroscience sequence, you will compare the anatomical structures of human, horse, primate, sheep, pig and rat brain.

There are tutors for each of the introductory courses as well as most of the STEM classes offered at Agnes. The Center for Writing and Speaking (CWS) will review any presentation or written assignment for Neuroscience course work as well. 

We have a Google drive folder for our majors! The folder contains application guides for REUs and post-Agnes school or work, major planning checklist, information on Nu Rho Psi, potential career options for a Neuroscience major, internship and research ideas matched to your career path, D-portfolio guidelines, annual award information, Scotties with Nerves information, and more! If you need access to the drive, email the Neuroscience Program:

Not only is there academic help, there are clubs for interest groups within the Neuroscience major as well - the Psychology and Neuro Club, Sisters in STEM, out in STEM (oSTEM), Nu Rho Psi (the National Honor's Society for Neuroscience), Pre-Vet club, and GEMS
