Represents the first half OF a year-long, graduate-LEVEL survey OF NEURO. The goals FOR NEUROSCI 601 AND 602 are : 1) TO provide our students WITH a sense OF the state OF CURRENT knowledge IN molecular, cellular, developmental, integrative AND cognitive Neuroscience. Considerable emphasis IS put ON pulling together information obtained FROM different types OF investigations(anatomical, physiological, behavioral, biochemical, genetic) TO gain a balanced VIEW OF Neuroscience. 2) TO provide our students WITH a sense OF how knowledge was obtained, BY reading AND discussing "classic papers." 3) TO provide our students WITH a sense OF WHERE the CURRENT frontier IS, BY reading AND discussing very recent papers. Each week this class meets FOR 3 - 5 hours, WITH a mix OF lectures AND discussion. The major topics treated IN NEUROSCI 601 AND 602 are : I) Excitable Membranes, II) Molecular Neuropharmacology, AND III) Developmental Neurobiology. Students who wish TO study ONLY a single area OF Neuroscience may register FOR single modules OF the course(Module 1, Excitable membranes = NEUROSCI 611; Module 2, Molecular Neuropharmacology = NEUROSCI 612 OR Pharmcology 615; Module 3, Development OF the Nervous System = NEUROSCI 613) FOR one credit each. Students who complete NEUROSCI 601 will receive 4 credits.
