I want to either do a degree in psychology or neuroscience. I want to end up doing research after maybe taking a masters or even a pHD,(is going into research possible after just a degree?) so i was wondering which degree would allow me to have the option of studying either psych or neuro since i am not sure what i will be most interested in after my undergraduate studies.
I don't want to limit myself by choosing the wrong degree.
Any help is appreciated Thanks!
I am in year 12 studying Bio, Chem and Psych

Have you looked at universities that offer joint Psychology and Neuroscience? For example, I just received an offer from Glasgow for their psychology and neuroscience course.
In order to go into research you'd need a postgraduate qualification, normally a PhD.

The research route usually is a masters and PhD, in that you'll do those and then join the unviersity as a researcher/lecturer or then move into NHS/private research.
A combined degree as mentioned above?
Perhaps a degree in one and then a combined masters?
At the end of the day, research is often collaborative, so if you became a neuroscientist and were interested in psychological areas, you can just team up with neuro-psychologists and work together. I imagine there is a lot of cross-over and won't really matter.
Contact reseacher's at uni's who have either qualification and ask them.
