B.Sc. in Neuroscience Technology

B.Sc. in Neuroscience Technology

A neuroscience technologists is a multi-skilled allied health professional who performs diagnostic testing procedures including, but not limited to, electroencephalograms (E E G), evoked potentials (E P), Polysomnography (P S G), nerve conduction studies (N C S) and Electronystagmogram (E N G). They work under the supervision of a physician who is responsible for interpretation and clinical correlation of the results. This physician is not usually physically present during the procedures and so the technologist must be able to analyse data during the recording, making certain that the information being obtained is valid and interpret-able. A relevant patient history obtained by the technologist guides to some degree how the test will be conducted; therefore, he / she must be knowledgeable in clinical neurology.

Course Duration

Duration Shall Be For A Period Of Three And Half Years Including Six Months Of Internship.

The marks of the internal assessment must be displayed on the notice board of the respective colleges with in a fortnight from the date test is held. If a candidate is absent for any one of the tests due to genuine and satisfactory reasons, such a candidate may be given a re-test within a fortnight.

Scope of Neuroscience

  • There are a lot many institutes and research centres in India which encourage neuro scientific research. However, the probability of getting into these institutes is fairly low because of high population and limited seats.
  • USA, Germany, Australia and UK are places which encourage intensive research in the field of neuroscience. There are multiple opportunities in research fields for students willing to pursue a career in research in the places.
  • The jobs in neuroscience are usually offered in the field education in higher study institutes, research centres and laboratories etc.
  • There are certain industrial jobs also available in companies dealing with biotechnology in neurosciences.
  • There are biomedical institutes which have a high demand of neuroscientists for research and testing of neuro scientific products.
  • In order to enhance your chances at getting better jobs, it is always suggested that you opt for further study in this field. Since it is a research oriented course, you do not tend to learn all parameter involved in research and applications in your under graduation.
  • There are many institutes, both in India and abroad which offer both undergraduate and postgraduate course in neuroscience.
