Biology or neuroscience?

Can someone tell me how sciences are at Amherst? All indications are that they are very good, but how strong are the professors in these particular areas. Also, are research opportunites available for majors in these areas as well? If so, can a student who is a freshman immediately get involved in research?

    I personally am not taking a science class, but I do know that the research opportunities are good because there are no grad students doing the work. I know several freshman who are involved in research right now; if that's not good I don't know what is.
