Human understanding of the brain and nervous system has improved dramatically over the past three decades. With the rapid expansion of knowledge has come an understanding that behavioral and cognitive disorders associated with both childhood development and with aging have a biological basis, and many have their origins in the interaction between the nervous system and environmental factors. Recent research has revealed that a healthy brain and nervous system depends on sound biologic function. Therefore, a basic understanding of the biology of the brain and nervous system, and of how the nervous system interacts with environmental factors, is necessary. This course will cover fundamental biological processes in the brain and nervous system, the role of the nervous system in human and animal behavior, and how environmental influences impact these processes at the cellular and organismal levels. Prerequisite or corequisite: BIOL 209

Research into the cellular and molecular mechanisms of memory often challenge our intuitions of how memory works and, indeed, our personal experiences of memory. In this course, we will explore classical and contemporary research into the mechanisms of memory with a focus on non-human animals. The goal is to understand the multifaceted and integrated way that molecules and cells in the nervous system work together to underlie memory. The course will rely on research articles and review papers in the field, and students will develop their skills in writing and presenting for scientific and public audiences. Students will have an opportunity to choose their own topics for assignments.Research into the cellular and molecular mechanisms of memory often challenge our intuitions of how memory works and, indeed, our personal experiences of memory.

If we are to understand how behavior is guided by environmental cues, we must first understand how sensory information about the world is represented and processed in brain. In this seminar-style course, we will examine the neural organization of sensory systems, particularly the organization of cortical structures. We will first explore how various organizational strategies are used in different systems to perform specific functions, leading to the focus of our course: how information from different sensory modalities is integrated in higher-order cortical areas, and how this integration ultimately influences behavior. Prerequisite: C- or better in any two neuroscience elective courses or permission of the instructor
