Are you kidding? UC Berkeley is ranked 9th in the USA for neurosciences. UC Davis isn't even on the list.
In molecular biology it is ranked 4th. Cal Davis is ranked 34th.
No difference at all, eh?
NB I compared both because depending on the school and the research track "neurosciences" can mean a lot of different things.
PS: Please go to any top 10 university and find a professor there who went to a school outside of the top 20. Sure, that's a bit hyperbolic, but you get my point. It's gonna take awhile. And that's not hyperbolic.
