neuroscience undergrad course work advice

Simple enough to answer.  Essentially, you should have a variety of core courses
in biology, maintaining above a 3.0 overall, and getting mostly 'A's in biology.
In addition, one year of organic chemistry plus math through calculus and 
physics (in some programs) are also important.

In terms of getting into graduate schools, grades and the general GRE are the
two most important factors.  Third is references from faculty, followed
by research and subject GRE scores. (This may vary.)

I would suggest going to your University's placement office and seeing if
they have copies of science graduate programs from different schools. 
Undergraduate core course requirements are usually listed in the brochures.

Good luck,
Jason Eriksen
