Course Information


HS 550 – Neural Systems

COURSE DESCRIPTION: Organization and function of the cerebral cortex.  The approach is multi-disciplinary, drawing upon fundamental concepts of the neuroanatomy, neurochemistry and physiology of the cerebral cortex.  We explore current findings and ideas about the development, common and special modes of processing in sensory, motor and high-order association systems of the cerebral cortices, their modulation by subcortical structures, and their disruption in neurologic and psychiatric diseases. Methods used to investigate the nervous system at different levels are described and illustrated to facilitate comprehension of the current literature.


HS 755 – Readings in Neuroscience

COURSE DESCRIPTION: Presentations and discussion of current issues in neuroscience with an emphasis on the cerebral cortex.

Graduate course; Background on the fundamentals of neuroscience required.
