Neuroscience is one of the most rapidly progressing sciences, and recent scientific and clinical studies change how we view the human brain. We will examine the nervous system from the most basic biological levels: genes, molecular signaling, cells, and neural networks. Through primary and secondary literature we will focus primarily upon simple nervous systems and simple circuits. Students will choose selected topics and give in-depth presentations and lead discussions. By this approach we will learn about the methods of the most current research, and how our brain controls our body and behavior (BIOL 0370 or NSCI 0251). 3 hrs. sem.
