NSUR 70Q: Experimental Stroke

Preference to sophomores. How stroke is studied in the laboratory; advances in stroke research over the last two decades; and future directions. Topics include: cellular and molecular mechanisms of neuronal death and survival in the brain after stroke, including necrosis, apoptosis, inflammation, and cell signaling pathways; experimental tools for stroke treatment, such as gene therapy, cell therapy, hypothermia, preconditioning, postconditioning, and other pharmacological treatments; the gap and barrier between laboratory research and clinical translation.

NSUR 199: Undergraduate Research

Students undertake investigations sponsored by individual faculty members. Prerequisite: consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1-18 | Repeatable for credit

NSUR 248: Neuroengineering Laboratory (BIOE 248)

Laboratory course exploring the basics of neuroelectrophysiology, neuroengineering, and closed-loop neural decoding. Course will use low-cost electrophysiological amplifying equipment and a real-time recording and computational system to measure neural action potentials from invertebrates, record electromyography from people, and create real-time neural decoders for closed-loop human movement control experiments. Fundamental properties of neurons and systems neuroscience will be experimentally verified. Engineering concepts surrounding neural decoders will be explored. Final project in the course will be a student-conceived in-depth experiment. More information and enrollment instructions are at http://bil.stanford.edu/class.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3

NSUR 261: Principles and Practice of Stem Cell Engineering (BIOE 261)

Quantitative models used to characterize incorporation of new cells into existing tissues emphasizing pluripotent cells such as embryonic and neural stem cells. Molecular methods to control stem cell decisions to self-renew, differentiate, die, or become quiescent. Practical, industrial, and ethical aspects of stem cell technology application. Final projects: team-reviewed grants and business proposals.
Last offered: Autumn 2008

NSUR 262: 2 Photon Imaging of Neural Circuits

Advances in 2-photon microscopy have allowed unprecedented leaps in understanding the structure and function of neural circuits. This hands-on laboratory based course offers a deep dive about 2-photon microscopy for neuroscience. This course will be structures in such a way that students learn fundamental principles about optics, neuronal morphology, and calcium signaling directly from the experiments we perform in the laboratory and discussions during lectures.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3-4

NSUR 280: Early Clinical Experience in Neurosurgery

Provides an observational experience as formulated by the instructor and student. Prerequisite: consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr, Sum | Units: 1-2 | Repeatable for credit

NSUR 287: Brain Machine Interfaces: Science, Technology, and Application (PSYCH 287)

This course explores the current state of brain-machine interfaces: technologies that directly stimulate and/or record neural activity. Such interfaces are being used to treat nervous system disorders, including hearing, seeing, and motor dysfunction. We expect that the range of applications will expand over the next decade to other neurological conditions and to augmentation of function. The material we cover aims to explain some of the existing technology and to clarify its limitations and promise. The course organization is designed to develop new ideas and promote new collaborations for extending the reach of these technologies. The class will feature lecturers with expertise in brain-machine interfaces of various sorts or related technologies and methods, as well as directed readings and discussion about new work in the field. In the previous year lectures were given by: Brian Wandell, Daniel Palanker, Nikos Logothetis, John Oghalai, Stephen Baccus, Paul Nuyujukian, Dan Yoshor and Nick Melosh.
