NEUR 294-01  Cellular Neurophysiology
MWF 08:30 am-09:30 am OLRI 352 Eric Gustafson
The nervous system is made up of vast array of interconnected cells. In this lab-centered course, we will investigate the cellular and molecular properties that underlie the communication between these cells; including the membrane properties that allow for neuron excitability, the structure and function of the synapses that mediate signaling between cells, and the intracellular molecules that respond to cell activity. Students will learn basic electrophysiological methods that will allow them to record and analyze electrical responses in the nervous system. Later in the course, student groups will develop their own experiments and present their results to the class. Discussion and presentation of primary literature will be a focus of the course.

NEUR 294-L1  Cellular Neurophysiology Lab
T 08:00 am-11:10 am OLRI 371 Eric Gustafson
 
NEUR 300-01  Directed Research

TR 01:20 pm-02:50 pm OLRI 370 Darcy Burgund
*Cross-listed with PSYC 385-01; ACTC students may register with permission of the instructor*

NEUR 394-01  Dance and the Brain
MWF 09:40 am-10:40 am THEATR 205 Lile, Wiertelak
*Cross-listed with PSYC 394-02 and THDA 294-02* Dance makes use of processes of entrainment of both emotional valence and temporal information into movement. The embodiment of these concepts arguably makes dance the most complex form of motor responses the nervous system processes. This seminar-based course pursues an innovative curriculum of providing crosscutting training in a variety of forms of dance, exploration of relevant neuroscientific literature and discussion, and examination of dance theory (and to an extent, music theory) in a context of student-centered activities. Students will employ first hand experience in dance work (at their own level of expertise) relevant to deeper understanding of the nervous system, and examine leveraging greater understanding of the nervous system to optimize practice and physical performance in dance and other athletic activities.

NEUR 488-01  Senior Seminar
F 02:20 pm-04:30 pm OLRI 371 Eric Wiertelak
*2 credits; S/NC grading only*
