NENS 230: Analysis Techniques for the Biosciences Using MATLAB

Data analysis and visualization techniques commonly encountered in biosciences research. Fundamentals of the MATLAB computing environment, programming and debugging, data import/export, data structures, plotting, image analysis, introduction to statistical tools. Examples and assignments draw from a range of topics applicable to bioscience research: frequency analysis, genetic data mining, ion channel kinetics, neural spike rasters and spike-triggered averages, cell counting in fluorescence images, regression, PCA, and stochastic simulation. Assignments are practical in nature and demonstrate how to implement specific analyses that a biosciences student is likely to encounter. Assumes no previous programming experience.
Terms: Aut | Units: 2

NENS 267: Molecular Mechanisms of Neurodegenerative Disease (BIO 267, GENE 267)

The epidemic of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease occasioned by an aging human population. Genetic, molecular, and cellular mechanisms. Clinical aspects through case presentations.nnnThis class is open to both graduate and undergraduate students, but requires sufficient backgrounds in college level genetics, cell biology and biochemistry. Undergraduates who are interested are required to contact the course director first.
Terms: Win | Units: 4

NENS 301A: Neurology Core Clerkship

Closed to visitors. The Neurology Core Clerkship is designed to train students in the systematic and logical approach to a wide variety of clinical neurology via the comprehension and application of the neurologic history and physical exam in the evaluation and management of neurological diseases. Students are assigned to the following locations for training: Stanford Hospital neurology inpatient wards; Stanford Hospital neurology outpatient clinic; Stanford Hospital Neurology Intensive Care Unit; Stanford Neurosurgery Service; Santa Clara Valley Medical Center neurology inpatient consultation and clinic service; the Palo Alto Veterans Administration ward/ consultation/ clinic neurologic services; Lucile Packard Children's Hospital neurology consultation and clinics. All these venues satisfy the core graduation requirement for the Required Neurology Clerkship. Responsibilities differ among the different clerkship venues, but a common core of teaching and exposure to a variety of neurologic patient encounters and experiences will be presented to all students. Regardless of site location, students are expected to attend the core didactics of the clerkship that take place once weekly on Stanford Hospital campus. By the end of the clerkship, the students will know how to fully evaluate patients (with the neurologic history and competent neurological examination) and will have increased practical knowledge of clinical conditions affecting the nervous system. Passing of the NBME Subject Exam in Neurology is a required component of the clerkship and materials for study are provided to each student in support of this effort. Prereq: None. For students requesting placement on neurosurgery service, preference is given to students who have completed the core surgical clerkship. However, student must have completed formal OR SCRUB TRAINING. Periods Avail: 1-12, except Christmas break. 4-9 students per period. Reporting Instructions: TBA. Units: 6. Call Code: 1. Director: Veronica Santini, M.D., M.A. (954-632-8899, santiniv@stanford.edu) Other Faculty: Neurology, Neurosurgery and Neuro Pediatrics.
