1051. Fundamentals of Neuroscience (3 s.h.)
One of the last frontiers in science is the brain. Neuroscience is one of the fastest growing domains in all of science - and a good bet for a future career path. Neuroscientists investigate brain function from the level of molecular genetics, to cellular dynamics, to brain anatomy and physiology, to relations between brain, behavior and cognition, to brain development and aging, to diseases of the brain. In this course, we will touch on knowledge about the brain at all of these levels. The major course goal is to introduce you to neuroscience and its multidisciplinary dimensions.
