NEUR 500S Statistics for Neuro/Pharm Research 2.0 Credits

This course will provide hands on instruction in how research data are managed and analyzed in neurobiological research. Studies will acquire a basic statistical knowledge with emphasis on application to data sets similar to what they can expect to encounter in their thesis research. Instruction in the use of statistical programs will be included.

NEUR 501S Neuroscience 1st Lab Rotation 4.0 Credits

First laboratory rotation. Guided research is conducted on a part-time basis for two or three 10-16 week periods. Rotations are generally conducted during fall, spring and summer of the first and second years. An oral presentation highlighting the background, rationale, methods, results and discussion of the research activity is required at the end of each rotation.

NEUR 505S ADVANCED MOLECULAR NERUBIOL. 1.0 Credit

This is a graduate course aimed to discuss basic concepts and state-of-the-art techniques in molecular neurobiology. The course also serves as a form for all members of the Graduate Program in Neurobiology, including faculty, graduate and post-doctoral students, and technical staff, to discuss recent developments in molecular neurobiology. The class meets once a month. Some meetings focus on basic concepts and recent findings in the field, whereas others examine novel biotechniques. The discussion is led by a speaker, who in most cases is a faculty member from the Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy. Occasionally, specialists from other institutions are invited to speak on a particular subject. Students taking the course for credits will be asked to lead one section in a related subject of their choice. Full attendance is required.

NEUR 607S INTEGRATED NEUROSCIENCE 4.0 Credits

This is a core course required of all graduate students in the Neuroscience Program. The prerequisite is completion of Medical Neuroscience. The course meets twice weekly during the fall semester for 2 hour sessions, which include a mix of lecture and discussion. The course emphasizes critical evaluation of experimental methods used for investigation problems in the organization and function of the central nervous system. One major goal of the course is to teach the students a system approach to analyzing the CNS control of behavior and physiology. The topics that are chosen to illustrate these principles of organization include sensorimotor integration; CNS development; neurochemical anatomy: sites and mechanism underlying regulation if ingestion, responses to stress and sexual behavior: central mechanisms of award, learning and memory: and recovery of function after CNS damage. An important second goal is to relate activity at the systems level to underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms. These strategies discussed throughout the course but especially in development; genetic basis of psychopathology: CNS injury and recovery; and use of molecular techniques for modulating behavior. The students are required to write four papers covering information from four separate blocks of the course and one final paper comparing the uses of transgenic knockouts, inducible knockouts and antisense approaches for studying a system of the student's choice. These papers are read by the faculty and defended by the students.
