The field of experimental psychology is definitely trending toward neuroscience so I would highly recommend it if you are interested and enjoy any neuroscience classes you've taken. All of the major research institutions in the United States have some form of it (MRI, PET, EEG).
If you graduate with a neuroscience degree, there are opportunities for neuroscience research assistantships or research coordinator jobs at major research universities (like UMinn, NYU, WashU, Harvard, and others). It also could be ideal for applying to graduate programs in neuroscience.
Likely, you would qualify just as much for jobs or graduate programs as you otherwise would with a B.S. Psychology, as a bachelor's degree in psych is the minimum requirement for entry-level psychology research positions. But a neuro major would allow you to take more classes on neuropsychology, which sounds like a big plus for you.
