NEUROSCI 704 - Readings in Integrative Neuroscience
Schedule Listing
001 (SEM)
Note: The nature and the neural basis of consciousness is a foundational question in neuroscience. As a scientific inquiry, it speaks to the existence of reality as we perceive it, and from a translational and therapeutic perspective, a fundamental understanding of the biological basis of consciousness has implications for disorders ranging from psychiatric disorders to the disorders of consciousness. In this course, we will start with a brief overview of the current neuroscientific frameworks and theories to study consciousness, and then as we move forward, will discuss the recent literature on the neurobiology of physiological (sleep), pharmacological (anesthesia, psychedelic states), and pathological states (coma, vegetative state) of consciousness. The students will participate in discussion and presentation of recent relevant literature. What: NS704, The Cognitive Neuroscience of Consciousness Who: Neuroscience and psychology students (and other interested people) When: Fall semester, Wednesdays at Noon Where: Medical School, Med-Sci I, 7th floor conference room (#7433D)

F 12:00PM - 1:00PM
Note: Psychedelic neuroscience is one of the most dynamic fields in 21st century neurobiology. This course will examine current research on canonical and non-canonical psychedelic drugs as well as the psychedelic experience itself. The focus will be on systems neuroscience, including studies on neurophysiology, neuroimaging, and circuit-level mechanisms. Multidisciplinary engagement is welcomed but the course is designed primarily for graduate students in a related field (e.g., neuroscience, pharmacology, psychology, physiology).
