Systems Neuroscience

Course Objectives and Organization

This course is an introduction to the functional anatomy, electrophysiology, and pharmacology of the central and peripheral nervous systems.

Emphasis is placed on the functional organization and processing of information in the major input and output systems of the brain, including the somatosensory, motor, visual, auditory and autonomic and hormonal regulatory systems, and on the higher integrative functions of the nervous system, including learning, emotion, motor control, and sleep. The course will consist of lectures and readings in primary literature.
