COLLEGE OF ARTS & SCIENCES
NEUROBIOLOGY

Detailed course offerings (Time Schedule) are available for

NBIO 301 Introduction to Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology (5) NW Moody
Introduces students to the physiological and molecular properties of individual nerve cells and the synaptic connections between them, and to principles of nervous system development. Includes weekly laboratory sessions. Prerequisite: BIOL 220. Offered: W.
MyPlan Course Details: NBIO 301 (student access only)

NBIO 302 Introduction to Systems and Behavioral Neurobiology (3/5) NW M. BOSMA, J. SISNEROS
Introduces neuroethology, i.e., the mechanisms by which neurons and the synaptic connections among them produce sensory perceptions and complex behavioral outputs. Available with or without weekly laboratory sessions. Prerequisite: NBIO 301. Offered: A.
MyPlan Course Details: NBIO 302 (student access only)

NBIO 303 Neuronal Coding and Computation (1-3)
Introduces computational neuroscience, focusing on concepts that are related to neuronal and synaptic biophysics. Works through mathematical concepts and methods to describe neuronal dynamics, and introduce methods to analyze and characterize neural coding. Uses Matlab as a programming language to implement models or neuronal dynamics to perform data analysis. Prerequisite: MATH 125. Credit/no-credit only. Offered: W.
MyPlan Course Details: NBIO 303 (student access only)

NBIO 401 Systems Neurobiology (3) NW Robinson
Introduces students to the anatomical and physiological organization of the major sensory, motor, and associative systems of the mammalian brain. Behavioral data used to stress functional integration of systems. Includes gross brain anatomy demonstration and computer tutorials. Prerequisite: NBIO 302. Offered: Sp.
MyPlan Course Details: NBIO 401 (student access only)

NBIO 402 Diseases of the Nervous System (3) NW Froener, Horwitz
Introduces the basic mechanisms of mammalian nervous system function through the study of human neurological diseases that result from specific disruption of neuronal signaling. Prerequisite: NBIO 401. Offered: W.
MyPlan Course Details: NBIO 402 (student access only)

NBIO 403 Systems and Behavioral Neurobiology (3) NW Kim
Topics include information processing in sensory and motor systems, sensory-motor integration, learning, and memory. Using examples from the field of neuroethology, encourages students to work independently on problems taken from the recent neurobiological research literature. Prerequisite: NBIO 401. Offered: W.
MyPlan Course Details: NBIO 403 (student access only)

NBIO 404 Neuropharmacology (3) NW Stella
Actions of drugs on the brain at clinical, cellular, and molecular levels. Therapeutic use of drugs in treatment of neurological and psychiatric diseases. Abuse of drugs and the mechanisms of addiction, tolerance, and withdrawal. Prerequisite: NBIO 401. Offered: Sp.
MyPlan Course Details: NBIO 404 (student access only)
