ICOS-325 Disorders and Diseases of the Brain
Fall for 2008-2009
This course uses a neuroscience approach to study disorders of the brain. It reviews basic concepts in neuroscience and provides an overview of functional neuroanatomy. This knowledge is then applied to examine the cellular and molecular underpinnings of various abnormalities of the nervous system. Discussions emphasize the relationship between basic neuroscience and physiological psychology. This course is a joint venture of the Cognitive Science Program and the Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience (IPN), a Ph.D. program based in Georgetown's Medical Center. The course is developed and taught by a team of advanced Ph.D. students in the IPN, who are eager to share their work and their excitement about neuroscience with undergraduate students in the College.
