Courses for Fall 2020

  • Independent Study

    Laboratory-oriented research in neuroscience, supervised by staff members. A student, under the guidance of a neuroscience faculty member, proposes a topic for research, develops the procedures for its investigation, and writes a report of the results of his or her study. Independent study may replace only one required course in the neuroscience concentration. Prerequisites include NEUR 0010, 1020 and 1030. Section numbers vary by instructor. Please check Banner for the correct section number and CRN to use when registering for this course. Permission must be obtained from the Neuroscience Department.

    NEUR 1030 S01
    All conference sections will meet in a synchronous, online format. To accommodate students in multiple time zones/with different needs, we will schedule four of the sections (C04, C06, C08, C09) later in the registration process. Please join one of these sections if the times for the other sessions don't work for you. Note that all conference sections will happen between noon Eastern time Thursday and 10:30a Eastern time Tuesday. We are aiming to schedule C04 sometime on Thursday, C06 sometime on Friday, and C08 sometime on Monday. (C09 TBD) Note that if course enrollment changes, one section may be removed.

  • Structure of the Nervous System

    Combined lecture and laboratory course on the anatomy of the central nervous system. Lectures survey the circuitry of the major neural systems for sensation, movement, cognition, and emotion. Laboratory exercises (Mon. 10:30-12:30) include brain dissections, microscopy of neural tissue, and discussion of clinical cases. Prerequisites: NEUR 0010, NEUR 1020, and NEUR 1030. Please request an override through [email protected] Please keep in mind that decisions on overrides may not be made until the first meeting of the course.

  • Mechanisms and Meaning of Neural Dynamics

    We humans can shift our attention, perceive new objects, make complex motions, and adjust each of these behaviors within factions of a second. Neurons and systems of neurons vary in their activity patterns on millisecond to second time scales, commonly referred to as "neural dynamics." This course addresses mechanisms underlying this flexibility and its potential meaning for information processing in the brain. The course integrates biophysical, computational, single neuron and human studies. In addition to lectures and readings, students will learn how to build computational models to simulate neural dynamics at various scales from single neurons to networks, using Matlab and the Human Neocortical Neurosolver. Computational modeling will be taught hands-on in an interactive lab session each week. Please request override through [email protected]

  • Big Data Neuroscience Lab

    Recent technological developments have transformed neuroscience research, enabling us to generate comprehensive 'big data' sets that are often shared freely amongst the neuroscience community. This lab course will explore strategies to effectively use such open-sourced neuroscience data sets. Students will identify fundamental open questions in brain science and develop strategies to mine open-source sequencing, imaging and connectivity data to address their research questions.

    If you would like this course to appear in your transcript as BIOL, please preregister for BIOL 1630, otherwise register for NEUR 1630. If the number of available spaces in BIO 1630 has exceeded its cap, preregister for NEUR 1630 and then you will be able to request an override to switch numbers from your instructor during add/drop period.

  • Region of Interest: An In-Depth Analysis of One Brain Area

    An in-depth exploration of one region of the brain. Topics will include: cell types and properties; synaptic properties; plasticity; connections to other brain areas; sub-divisions within the area; the region's role in sensation and perception; the region's role in action and behavior; the region's role in learning and memory; and diseases and disorders. Students will gain a deeper understanding of concepts and principles that apply throughout the brain. Students will gain experience with primary literature and learn about techniques for studying the area. Topic Fall 2020: Amygdala. Please request the override during pre-registration. Students will not match with this course during the initial match phase, but students who request overrides will get additional information about how to gain a spot in this course by the end of August.

  • Advanced Molecular and Cellular Neurobiology I

    Focuses on molecular and cellular approaches used to study the CNS at the level of single molecules, individual cells and single synapses by concentrating on fundamental mechanisms of CNS information transfer, integration, and storage. Topics include biophysics of single channels, neural transmission and synaptic function. Enrollment limited to graduate students.

  • Statistical Neuroscience

    A lecture and computing lab course for senior undergraduate and graduate students with background in either systems neuroscience or applied math/biomedical engineering on the statistical analysis and modeling of neural data, with hands-on Matlab(Octave)/Python-based applications to real and simulated data. Topics will include signal processing, hypothesis testing and statistical inference, modeling of multivariate time series and stochastic processes in neuroscience and neuroengineering, neural point processes, time and spectral domain analyses, and state-space models. Example datasets include neuronal spike trains, local field potentials, ECoG/EEG, and fMRI. Sign-up sheet in Sidney Frank Hall, Room 315 beginning on the first day of registration. Instructor permission required.

  • Communication In the Brain: What We Know and How We Know It

    Neurons communicate through the thousands of synapses they form. In this seminar-style course, we will explore the cellular and molecular underpinnings of synaptic transmission. We will then examine how synapse number and function can be modulated to shape circuit function during development, learning & memory formation, and in response to perturbations. We will develop scientific thinking skills and an understanding of experimental approaches in modern neuroscience by focusing on how the field investigates synaptic transmission and plasticity. All readings are from primary literature. Please request override through [email protected]
