at my school, university of toronto, i take a bunch of psychology courses which are considered science courses at my university. these courses include things like biological psychology, cognitive neuroscience. they are heavily based in neuroscience and brain physiology/anatomy. they aren't the typical things that come to mind when the lay person thinks of psychology (social psych). my quesiton is, can i use one of the professors for these courses as my science reference? at my school, they would be considered a science professor. or do i instead have to use them as a non-science reference. i specifically did research in cognitive neuroscience. this involved working with MRI to design specific cognitive tasks and see the activated brain regions. i dont' see why this would be considered a non-science reference. basically, is science/non-science determined by the school you attend, or the school you are applying to. thanks.
