An introduction to the nervous system and behavior that explores fundamental issues in neuroscience from a variety of perspectives. Emphasis will be placed on technological advances, experiments and methodologies that have most influenced our understanding of the nervous system. The class will be divided into three groups that will rotate through four 3-week modules covering the history and philosophy of neuroscience, the electrical nature of the nervous system, the chemical nature of the nervous system, and cognition and the nervous system. The course will end with a final integrative module that brings together fundamental principles developed throughout the course. Intended primarily for first- and second-year students. Permission of instructor required for third- and fourth-year students. Lecture, discussion, and laboratory. Offered annually.
