It brings us great sadness to
announce that our friend and
colleague, Jonathan Vaughan,
the James L. Ferguson Professor
of Psychology and Neuroscience,
passed away on September 14,
2014. His leadership at Hamilton
College and his mentorship of
students and faculty colleagues
will be deeply missed. A video
tribute has been created in his

Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience

The brain is our most fascinating and complicated organ, and it governs the very nature of our conscious existence. To understand the central nervous system is important as a topic of basic science and for its obvious medical benefits. Neuroscience is the study of the nervous system, and this field uses approaches from many different disciplines, including biology, chemistry, and psychology. The study of neuroscience provides a remarkable opportunity for students to understand the interrelationships between the basic sciences and how those disciplines intersect with philosophy, mathematics, and computer science.
