Medical Neuroscience: Foundations for the Neurological Sciences
Examines the functional organization and neurophysiology of the human central nervous system, with a neurobiological framework for understanding human behavior. Students learn the anatomy and function of neural systems in the brain and spinal cord that mediate sensation, motivate bodily action, and integrate sensorimotor signals with memory, emotion, and related cognitive faculties. Provides the foundation for neurological sciences, including understanding the impairments of sensation, action, and cognition that accompany injury, disease, or dysfunction in the human central nervous system. Prior completion of Neuroscience 101/Psychology 106 or Neuroscience 102/Psychology 107 strongly encouraged.
