Neuroscience Student Opportunities

Recent internships for Neuroscience students include:

  • Case Western Reserve University Pharmacology program
  • University of Cincinnati Cell & Molecular Physiology program

Undergraduate research is a major component of the science program at Muskingum University. Neuroscience majors have recently performed research with Dr. Brian Bergstrom studying brain neurochemistry, specifically performing research using drugs of abuse, animal models of Parkinson's Disease, and pharmacological alteration of the dopamine neurons utilizing a cutting-edge research technique.

Qualified Neuroscience students may join the Muskingum University chapter of Beta Beta Beta (Tri-Beta, Upsilon Nu chapter), an international organization dedicated to improving the understanding and appreciation of biological study and extending boundaries of human knowledge through scientific research. Since its founding in 1922, more than 175,000 people have been accepted into lifetime membership, and more than 430 chapters have been established throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.

Professional Activities
