Neuroscience

NEUR 240 Neuroscience I (1)
This course begins by exploring the neuron and its unique cellular processes; neurophysiology, neurochemistry, neuroanatomy, and neuroplasticity will be covered. We will then attempt to understand selected homeostatic (e.g., eating), cognitive (e.g., sensation/perception, learning/memory), and emotional processes (e.g., reward, stress, and depression) at and across integrated levels of analysis (genetic, physiological, chemical, anatomical, and systems). Prereq : BIOL 120, 130, CHEM 101, 102, or PSYC 100 and permission of the instructor; A 0.5 credit tutorial will be offered concurrently with this course for students who have not completed the lower level biology and chemistry courses.; H.Hoffmann; E.Penick;

NEUR 241 Neuroscience II (1)
This course extends the topics covered in NEUR 240, including neurophysiology, neurochemistry, and neuroanatomy. Additionally it will introduce the history and methods of neuroscience to interpret experimental results in the primary literature. We will also examine how the brain can sense the environment and control the motor system. Prereq : NEUR 240, BIOL 120 and 130, and CHEM 101 and 102; E.Penick;

NEUR 340 Methods of Neuroscience (1)
This laboratory course focuses on the methods used for neuroscience research. Biochemical and electrophysiological techniques are examined. Data analysis, interpretation and scientific writing will be performed from the experiments done. Prereq : NEUR 241; E.Penick;

NEUR 360 Synapses (1)
Synapses are the location of neuronal communication. These sites also are the primary loci for a cellular correlate of learning and memory and the actions of drugs of abuse. We will examine the biology, physiology and plasticity these fascinating regions. Prereq : NEUR 241; E.Penick;

NEUR 395 Special Topics (1/2 or 1)

NEUR 399 Research in Neuroscience (1/2 or 1)
A one- or two-term experience in which students, with the aid of a faculty member, conduct original neuroscience research. The process includes reviewing the literature, generating hypotheses, collecting and analyzing data, and presenting results in written and oral form. Grade is withheld (NR) until full credit is earned. Prereq : NEUR 340 and either BIOL 210 or PSYC 282; W; May be repeated up to two times for up to 1 credit; Staff

NEUR 400 Advanced Studies (1/2 or 1)
