NRS 250 - Neuroscience: Foundations, Future, and Fallacies

4 credits (Spring)
This course introduces the historical and theoretical foundations of neuroscience. Topics will range broadly from questions at the molecular and cellular level to those of organismal behavior; and consideration will be given to how traditional disciplines such as biology, chemistry, and psychology have helped inform the field. The course will trace the development of neuroscience, considering both its successes and failures, as a means for appreciating its future directions. Three classes, one laboratory per week.

Prerequisite: Two 100-level science courses (with laboratories); must be from two different departments.
Instructor: Staff
