Systems Neuroscience with Laboratory
In 17S at 10 — Jeffrey Taube, Matt van der Meer
The primary focus of this course is the physiological basis of behavior from a systems perspective. Such topics as localization of function, neural models, and the physiological bases of sensory/motor systems, learning/memory, and spatial cognition are considered. The laboratory introduces the student to the anatomy and physiology of the mammalian central nervous system and to some of the principal techniques used in systems and behavioral neuroscience. Laboratory sections are scheduled for Tuesdays 9:00am-12:00pm, Tuesdays 1:30-4:30pm, Wednesdays 1:45-4:45pm, or Thursdays 1:30-4:30pm. Students will be assigned to one of these four laboratory sections.
Prerequisite: PSYC1 or PSYC 6; and PSYC 26 or PSYC 45 or BIOL 34; and permission through the department website.
