Course Descriptions

BIOL 59500 Neural Mechanisms In Health And Disease

Session Offered:

Spring Credit 3

Prerequisites:

Prerequisites:                        

There are no formal prerequisites. This course is intended for first year graduate students who are interested in neuroscience and neural information processing, including but not limited to biomedical engineering, biology, psychology, and electrical engineering students. There will be some coursework that will use MATLAB to carry out analyses, but students will work in pairs or groups with at least one student who is familiar with MATLAB, so an individual is not required to know it.

 

 

Description:

An examination of the mechanisms by which nervous systems process information in normal and pathologic states. Cellular and systems-level information processing will be studied with a focus on sensory and motor systems.  Students will gain some hands-on experience in the analysis of neural data. Some neuroanatomy will be included to understand how nervous systems are organized. Pathological states such as Alzheimer’s, autism, and aging will be studied, both in terms of understanding the systems and cellular deficits as well as examining potential solutions to improve the outcomes for these neural disorders.
