cambridge psychology and behavioural sciences content

for the modules neurobiology and evolution, how in depth does it get? does it cover cell biology, genetics, brain injury and diseases, plasticity, pharmacology etc.

also, say if one was to study pbs at cambridge (including the neurobiology and evolution modules), is it possible for them to go into studying animal behaviour and neuroscience? like maybe travel to an area of africa and study primates or something. the pbs degree covers most of my interests like psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, evolution but im also interested in animals and conservation so maybe thats a nice middle ground.
For neurobiology and evolution, I assume you mean evolution and behaviour in first year and neurobiology in second year?

A degree in PBS would almost certainly set you up for studying primates, considering I think you'd need a masters and PhD beforehand anyway, where you'd specialise further.

Hello! Do you know if the optional papers from Natural Sciences are limited to these 3 only (over 1st and 2nd year) - Evolution & Behaviour, Mathematical Biology and Neurobiology? Or can a student apply for other optional papers in NST?

Yes, those are the only NST papers you can do as a PBS
