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.

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.
Terms: Win | Units: 6 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)

NBIO 218: Neural Basis of Behavior

Advanced seminar. The principles of information processing in the nervous system and the relationship of functional properties of neural systems with perception, behavior, and learning. Original papers; student presentations. Prerequisite: NBIO 206 or consent of instructor.
Terms: not given this year | Units: 5 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)

NBIO 220: Central Mechanisms in Vision-based Cognition

Contemporary cognitive neuroscience, emphasizing the use of the primate visual and oculomotor systems to explore neural mechanisms underlying perception, attention, learning, and decision-making. Eight foundational topics in cognitive neuroscience; intensive study and critical discussion of selected papers from the contemporary literature. Student presentations, seminar-style discussions. Class enrollment is limited to 12 students. First priority will be given to students from the neurosciences graduate program.
Terms: not given this year, last offered Spring 2013 | Units: 2-4 | Grading: Letter or Credit/No Credit

NBIO 224: Glia and Neuroimmunology

The role of glia in the brain, including development, normal functioning, and disease. Topics include astrocytes, microglia, oligodendrocyte lineage, the blood brain barrier, and neuroimmunology with special emphasis on tools for studying glia. Preference to graduate students.
Terms: alternate years, given next year | Units: 2 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Medical Satisfactory/No Credit

NBIO 227: Understanding Techniques in Neuroscience

Topics include molecular, genetic, behavioral, electrophysiological, imaging, and computational approaches used in the field of neuroscience. Presentations and discussions led by senior graduate students, assigned readings from the primary neuroscience literature, and optional laboratory demonstrations. Intended for graduate students from any discipline and for advanced undergraduates in the biosciences, engineering, or medicine.
Terms: Aut | Units: 2 | Grading: Medical Satisfactory/No Credit

NBIO 228: Mathematical Tools for Neuroscience

Student-instructed. For students with no math background beyond basic calculus, or as a review for more advanced students.
