APPENDIX VII: Neuroscience Doctoral Program

The interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience includes faculty in several departments, primarily Biological Science and Psychology. Graduate students in the Department of Biological Science who are working with members of the Program in Neuroscience may elect to work toward the PhD in Neuroscience rather than the PhD in Biological Science. This program has additional requirements, offers opportunities for specialized training and a degree reflecting the specialization. Biological Science based Neuroscience PhD students remain graduate students in the Department of Biological Science and must meet all departmental requirements. In return, they remain eligible for all departmental benefits including TA appointments and travel funds. Courses required for all Neuroscience PhD students are PCB 5845: Cell and Molecular Neuroscience, PSB 5341: Systems and Behavioral Neuroscience, PSB 5057: Molecules to Behavior, and PSB 5077: Responsible Conduct of Research. The supervisory committee must include a minimum of 3 members of the graduate faculty who have doctoral directive status, one of whom is a representative-at-large of the graduate faculty drawn from outside the student's department and degree program. Neuroscience students should include a Neuroscience Program member from a department other than their home department and a non-Neuroscience Program member from their home department.

Prospective Neuroscience graduate students may enter the Neuroscience PhD degree track directly. Because there is no MS in Neuroscience, students wishing to achieve a Thesis MS degree before proceeding to the PhD may be admitted as a regular Biological Science student but are recognized within the Neuroscience Program and the Department as Neuroscience students.

A description of the Program in Neuroscience is found at the http://www.neuro.fsu.edu. The Program maintains several general-use facilities with associated professional staff in the department, including: BRF Computer Facility (Jason Orman); Photo lab (Charles Badland); Histology facility (XiXi Jia).
