NESC 3960: Research in Neuroscience
Credits: 3
Students in Neuroscience major are expected to participate in active research, supervised by a faculty research mentor. The course grade is based on 10 hours/week lab work toward achieving term goals that are determined individually at the beginning of the term. Students are expected to submit a Term Plan one month after the first day of classes and a Progress Report two weeks before the last day of classes.
BIOL 4930: Distinguished Major Thesis Research
Credits: 2
This course is the final semester of Independent Research for participants of the Biology Distinguished Majors Program. During this semester, students will complete their laboratory investigations, ultimately presenting the sum of their work in a written thesis. Prerequisite: Instructor Permission
NESC 4970: Distinguished Majors Thesis
Credits: 3
A two-semester course in which the student prepares a thesis under the supervision of a Neuroscience Graduate Program faculty member. The thesis must be based on empirical research conducted by the student. Prerequisite: Participant in Neuroscience DMP.
NESC 9012: Methods in Molecular, Cellular, & Developmental Neuroscience
Credits: 2
This course will provide the strong methodological foundation in molecular neuroscience. It will allow students to follow scientific lectures/seminars with ease while critically assessing discussed principles. Upon completion of this course, students will understand molecular and genetic methods used in assessing neuronal functions. This course will be a combination of lecture and discussion of classic and contemporary literature.
