  • NRSC 2100 - Introduction to Neuroscience
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020 / Spring 2021 / Fall 2021
    Provides an introduction to fundamental concepts in neuroscience. The goal of this first course is to provide a strong foundation in neurobiology-cell biology, physiology of the neuronal membrane, interneuronal communication, neurotransmission, gross anatomy, and how the brain develops. Students will also learn principles of sensory systems functions. Recitation will reinforce lecture concepts through discussion of current research.
  • NRSC 4011 - Senior Thesis
