    Prerequisite: BIONB 2220, BIOMG 3320, FGSS 2010, LGBT 2290 or permission of instructor. For NBB concentration: this course may be used toward the additional 7 credit requirement, but does not qualify as an advanced course. If a student enrolls in a non-CALS section of a cross-listed course, it will not automatically be counted as CALS credits in their degree progress. However, we can still give them CALS credit for the class, they just need to ask us to code it.

    In a rotating presentation format outside of the class lecture and lab sessions, graduate students from Biology and Engineering studies will present and discuss classical concept or technique papers in Neuroscience in a journal club. This will be scheduled to accommodate course faculty and student time commitments. Graduate students will complete a semester long project. The project range includes exploration of experimental neuroscience questions not covered in the undergraduate laboratory class, novel, low cost instrumentation design, computational approaches to nervous system function and development of active learning activities. The project will require a project proposal early in the semester, and a final project presentation and research journal style paper at the end of the semester.
