Courses in MED Neuroscience Laboratory
Neuroscience (NEUROSCI)
NEUROSCI 601 / MCDB 610. Principles Neuroscience I
Enrollment in a Ph.D. program. Graduate students in Master's degree programs may register only with the permission of the instructor. (3). (BS). May not be repeated for credit. F.

NEUROSCI 611 / MCDB 611. Neurochemistry/Neuropharmacology
Enrollment in a Ph.D. program. Graduate students in Master's degree programs may register only with the permission of the instructor. (1). (BS). May not be repeated for credit.

This course covers the neurochemistry and neuropharmacology of the major neurotransmitter system.

NEUROSCI 613 / MCDB 613. Circuits and Computational Neuroscience
Enrollment in a Ph.D. program. Graduate students in Master's degree programs may register only with the permission of the instructor. (1). (BS). May not be repeated for credit.

This course addresses neuronal activity within specific circuits and the application of computational methods to understand the analyze neuronal and circuit function (MatLab).

NEUROSCI 623 / MCDB 623. Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience Lab
Concurrent enrollment in Neuroscience 601 or previous completion of Neuroscience 601. (3). (BS). May not be repeated for credit.

The course introduces graduate pursuing doctoral training in Neuroscience to state of the art approaches in electro-physiology, cellular anatomy and molecular biology. At the completion of this course the student should be prepared to undertake the independent research in most areas of molecular neurobiology.

NEUROSCI 682 / CDB 682 / CMBIOL 682 / HUMGEN 682 / MCDB 683 / PATH 682 / PHYSIOL 682. Organogenesis of a Complex Tissue
Graduate Cell biology recommended, but not required. Graduate standing. (2). (BS). May not be repeated for credit.

This course will cover multiple aspects of organogenesis, including: morphological and molecular events underlying organ formation; in vitro and in vivo experimental systems; parallel pathways for organ formation in various model organisms; adult organ structure and pathology; organ regeneration/repair; stem cell systems: cell and tissue engineering; and carcinogenesis. Two modules make up the course a) organogenesis of the gut (the organ system changes each year); b) an exercise in writing a scientific proposal. Course objectives are: a) to provide students with a current, in-depth, multidisciplinary view of the processes of organogenesis; b) to highlight target areas of future research; c) to read and discuss significant papers in the field; and d) to practice the design and preparation of a research grant by writing a "miniproposal".
