    Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary research field, including disciplines such as biology, chemistry, mathematics, medicine, philosophy, physics and psychology. Neuroscientific problems and hypotheses are explored in different research groups at NTNU, through studies of humans, animal models and biochemical systems. This is also reflected in the wide range of available master's thesis projects.

    The international MSc programme in Neuroscience at NTNU is the first of its kind in Norway, and it offers a comprehensive and coherent graduate education in Neuroscience. The programme is the result of cooperation between the Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Information Technology, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Natural Sciences and Technology and Faculty of Social Sciences and Technology Management. It is embedded in strong research programmes in Neuroscience, as for example the Norwegian Centre of Excellence on Neural Computation and the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience. In addition, the MSc programme builds on strong clinical research into major neurological and psychiatric disorders, for instance the Norwegian National Headache Centre.
