NEUR Class Schedule

Courses

NEUR 500   Topics in Neuroscience   credit: 1 Hour.

Critical reading and discussion of current papers from the neuroscience literature, and discussion of other relevant topics such as ethics and career and professional skills development. Grading based on attendance and participation. Approved for letter and S/U grading. May be repeated to a maximum of 2 hours. Prerequisite: Enrollment in Neuroscience Ph.D. program or consent of instructor.

NEUR 520   Advanced Topics in Neuroscience   credit: 0 or 1 Hours.

Survey of current research in modern neuroscience. 0 or 1 graduate hours. No professional credit. Approved for S/U grading only. May be repeated.

NEUR 530   Special Topics in Neuroscience   credit: 1 to 4 Hours.

Discussion of current topics of interest in neuroscience; seminar or lecture format. 1 to 4 graduate hours. No professional credit. May be repeated up to 12 hours as topics vary. Prerequisite: Consent of instructor.

NEUR 542   Interdisciplinary Approaches to Neuroscience I   credit: 2 Hours.

Introduction for graduate students to the breadth and inter-disciplinary nature of Neuroscience, and to the topic areas investigated broadly by faculty of the Neuroscience Program (NSP). The course emphasizes concepts and methods rather than facts, and includes discussions and career development lectures. Team taught by multiple NSP faculty, senior students and postdocs, the course covers topics on the evolution of the nervous system, and cognitive, behavioral and clinical neuroscience. Same as MCB 542 and PSYC 542. 2 graduate hours. No professional credit.

NEUR 543   Interdisciplinary Approaches to Neuroscience II   credit: 2 Hours.

Introduction for graduate students to the breadth and inter-disciplinary nature of Neuroscience, and to the topic areas investigated broadly by faculty of the Neuroscience Program (NSP). The course emphasizes concepts and methods rather than facts, and includes discussions and career development lectures. Team taught by multiple NSP faculty, senior students and postdocs, the course covers topics in cellular, molecular, computational, behavioral and clinical neuroscience as well as neuroengineering. Same as MCB 543 and PSYC 543. 2 graduate hours. No professional credit. Prerequisite: NEUR 542 or consent of instructor.

NEUR 590   Indiv Topics Neuroscience   credit: 1 to 16 Hours.

Individual topics of research supervised by Neuroscience faculty. Usually taken in one of the eight Neuroscience concentration areas: 1) neuroanatomy, 2) neurophysiology, 3) cognitive and behavioral neuroscience, 4) neurochemistry, neuropharmacology and neurotoxicology, 5) neuroendocrinology and neuroimmunology, 6) developmental genetic and molecular neuroscience, 7) clinical and biomedical neuroscience, 8) computational neuroscience. Typically taken by students before they choose their thesis topic. Approved for S/U grading only. May be repeated in the same or subsequent terms. Prerequisite: Consent of instructor.

NEUR 599   Thesis Research   credit: 0 to 16 Hours.
