This is a mandatory course (P/F) for students who intend to attend GSBS Neuroscience Program. Students will attend the “Nervous System and Behavior Laboratory” course for medical students as special students and study a broad overview of the structure and function of the central nervous system. The general architecture of the nervous system and its functional systems are presented using human specimens in the classes. Graduate students will not only benefit from hands-on neuroanatomy laboratory sessions but also video lectures and online quizzes/answers. Through the course and interaction with faculties and other students each week, students will gain essential knowledge of the architecture of the nervous system and an appreciation for some of the fundamental ideas and unsolved questions in neuroscience research.
