Topics in Neuroscience Syllabus

HCS 8V50.021

 

Summer, 2007

 

Instructors:                Dr. Michael P. Kilgard

Offices:                      JO 4.304

Office Hours:                        by appointment

Office Phone:                       x2339

E-mail:                       [email protected]

 

Class Times:             12-1:30 pm TBA    Location:                       GR4.301 (Green Fishbowl)

                                    12-1pm Friday       Location:                       MP2.204 (the Neuroscience Conference Room)

 

Course Objectives:

 

The overall objective of the course is to increase understanding of recent developments in neuroscience through discussion and analysis of primary articles published in high impact journals.  Each week we will cover two journal articles in depth.  No text book is required for the class.  Readings will be from seminal or provocative articles chosen by the participants. 

 

Student Assessment:

 

Students registered for credit will be expected to attend all class meetings, participate in all discussions, and present at least two articles over the course of the semester.  Other class participants will be requested to present one article during the semester.  Presentations should be thorough and clear enough so that a participant need not have read the article before the class meeting in order to participate in the discussion.  The use of computer-based presentations, rather than overheads, are encouraged.  A computer and video projector will be available at each class.  The course is pass/fail.  No letter grades will be issued.

 

Readings:

 

Readings for the class will be selected by the participants.  The readings for each week will be announced during the previous class, at the latest.  The articles must be available on-line.  Presenters are asked to email a link to all participants providing a site where the article can be downloaded.  The readings should be selected from one of the following journals (Nature, Science, Nature Neuroscience, Journal of Neuroscience, Journal of Neurophysiology, Neuron, PNAS).  If a participant wishes to present an article from a different journal, please ask one of the instructors for permission.
