NBIO 101: Social and Ethical Issues in the Neurosciences (NBIO 201)

Foundational scientific issues and philosophical perspectives related to advances in the study of brain and behavior. Implications of new insights from the neurosciences for medical therapy, social policy, and broader conceptions of human nature including consciousness, free will, personal identity, and moral responsibility. Topics include ethical issues related to genetic screening and editing, desire and addiction, criminal behavior, the biology of sexuality, fetal pain, aging and neurodegenerative disease, brain-computer interfaces, and neural enhancement and the human future. May be taken for 2 units without a research paper. This course must be taken for a minimum of 3 units and a letter grade to be eligible for Ways credit. Undergraduates must enroll in NBIO101.

NBIO 206: The Nervous System

Structure and function of the nervous system, including neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and systems neurobiology. Topics include the properties of neurons and the mechanisms and organization underlying higher functions. Framework for general work in neurology, neuropathology, clinical medicine, and for more advanced work in neurobiology. Lecture and lab components must be taken together.

NBIO 227: Understanding Techniques in Neuroscience

Students will learn to select and evaluate multidisciplinary techniques for approaching modern neuroscience questions. A combination of lectures and small group paper discussions will introduce techniques from molecular, genetic, behavioral, electrophysiological, imaging, and computational neuroscience. Students will be expected to complete homework assignments analyzing primary literature and attend optional laboratory demonstrations. Intended for graduate students, postdocs, and staff from any discipline; and for advanced undergraduates in the biosciences, engineering, or medicine.

NBIO 228: Mathematical Tools for Neuroscience

Student-instructed. This course aims to equip biosciences graduate students with the fundamental skills in quantitative modeling and data analysis necessary for neuroscience research. It covers techniques including linear algebra, Fourier transforms, probability and statistics, signal detection, statistical inference, and information theory. The course is required for first-year students in the Neuroscience PhD program, and is open to other graduate students in the biosciences. Other students, including undergraduates, may enroll by special request.
