Neurobiology & Behavior Courses
Role of the central nervous system in the regulation of hormonal and vegetative functions; structure function relationships between brain and pituitary with modern views of neuroendo-crine regulation. Methods for study of neuroendocrine relationships will be discussed. Prerequisite: BSCI 5/70432.
Basic biochemistry of the mammalian nervous system, including myelin structure and metabolism, stimulus-secretion coupling, neurotransmitter and eicosanoid metabolism, energy utilization and the biochemistry of nervous disorders. Prerequisite: CHEM 5/70247 or permission.
FUNCTIONAL NEUROANATOMY (6)
Study of structure and function of mammalian nervous system with emphasis on human brain and human behavior. Lecture 5, laboratory and recitation 3 hours weekly. Prerequisite: Permission.
DEVELOPMENTAL AND EVOLUTIONARY NEUROBIOLOGY (3)
Experimental studies of the development and evolution of the vertebrate central nervous system. Prerequisite: BMS 6/70710 and permission.
The relation of aspects of the neurosciences to the fundamental properties of nervous tissue, establishing a firm base in experimental neurobiology. Lecture, discussion and laboratory. Prerequisite: BMS 6/70710 and permission of instructor.
SEMINAR IN NEUROBIOLOGY (1)
Credits may be applied toward degree if department approves. Repeat registration permitted. S/U grading. Prerequisite: Permission.
SPECIAL TOPICS IN NEUROBIOLOGY (2-3)
Study of problems of current importance. Content dependent on student requirements and on developments in field. IP permissible. Prerequisite: Permission.
