Established in 2010, Neuroscience is still one of Carleton’s newest and most rapidly growing academic departments!

From bullying to environmental pollutants, from over-eating to chronic pain, our bodies are constantly exposed to stressors. Our mission is to explore the neurobiological underpinnings of mental health problems that arise from psychosocial and environmental stressors encountered throughout the lifespan, and how they are modulated by genetic, cultural and gender factors, towards the ultimately goal of improving mental health.
