courses taught

  • NRSC 2200 - Laboratory Techniques in Neuroscience
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2019 / Spring 2020 / Fall 2020 / Spring 2021
    Introduces students to many basic and essential laboratory skills in neuroscience research. Students will learn experimental methods and perform experiments depicting principles in neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, neurochemistry, and the fundamentals of neuroimaging techniques.
  • NRSC 4062 - The Neurobiology of Stress
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2018 / Fall 2018 / Summer 2019 / Fall 2019 / Summer 2020 / Fall 2020
    Provides an introduction to the concept of stress and the physiological systems involved. Factors modulating stress vulnerability versus resilience, and stress interactions with other systems with health relevance will be explored. Emphasis will be placed on current research on brain mechanisms. Recommended prerequisite: a strong foundation and interest in biological psychology, neuroscience, and physiology. Formerly PSYC 4062.
  • NRSC 4132 - Neuropharmacology
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019 / Spring 2020 / Spring 2021
    Study of drug action within the central nervous system. This course is designed to provide a fundamental understanding of the neurobiological and neurochemical mechanisms of drug action. Topics covered include the following: 1) principles of pharmacology; 2) brain neurotransmitter systems; 3) biochemical basis of psychiatric disorders and their pharmacological treatment. Same as NRSC 5132.
