Abstract Over the past few decades, the field of neuroscience has grown dramatically and made tremendous progress. From its origins in physics, philosophy and psychology, the field has grown to include among its practitioners talented individuals not only from these founding disciplines but from many others. Though our progress in Neuroscience has been immense, there is still much to be done, and it has become clear that a large number of overlapping complimentary skill sets are required to make progress on the challenging problems that lie ahead. The vision of an interdisciplinary, integrated neuroscience enterprise has characterized our University since the inception of the field. The University of British Columbia is one of the world’s top leading academic institutions, and its Faculty of Medicine is renowned for its broad expertise in research, teaching, and clinical innovation. From the very beginning of the foundation of the University, UBC’s commitment to better understanding the brain was a priority. Just seven years before UBC opened its doors in 1913, the Nobel Prize was awarded to Ramon y Cajal and Camillo Golgi, the scientists who discovered neurons, the amazing, multi-variant, cells that communicate information to, from and within the brain. The study of the brain, was still in its infancy in 1906 when the Nobel Prize was awarded, but one of the first courses offered at UBC was Elementary Psychology, the study of brain and behaviour.
