Course Overview

This course is an exploration of the neurological basis of behavior. It covers basic brain anatomy and function as well as cognitive and behavioral disorders from a neurobiological perspective. Additionally, students explore current neuroscience research as well as the process of funding that research. Examples of illnesses that may be covered include: Alzheimer’s disease, traumatic brain injury, and stroke. In addition, we explore diagnostic and treatment issues (including behavioral and pharmaceutical management) as well as attention, learning, memory, sleep, consciousness and emotional intelligence. Students conclude the course by developing a fundraising campaign to support research and/or patient care initiatives related to a specific neurological condition and nonprofit foundation.
