GS14 1141 Neuroimmunology

  • Credit Hours: 1
  • Grading System: Pass/Fail
  • Prerequisites: None


This course combines knowledge from the fields of Neuroscience and Immunology. The course covers not only the studies of the nervous system/immune system, but also the immune responses to certain neurological diseases, including Alzheimer's Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Ischemic/Hemorrhagic Stroke, BBB disorders, etc. Specific immune cells will be discussed including the activation pathways of neutrophils, microglia, T/B cells upon pathogenic stimuli to the nervous system. The objectives of the course are to help students better understand the interactions of the nervous system and the immune system. Specifically, upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to better understand the roles of various immune cell types in the pathology of neuroinflammatory diseases, the molecular pathways that regulate the activation of immune cells and mobilization of inflammatory mediators. Auditing this course is permitted by course directors' consent.
