The neuroscience sequence is foundational in nature and stresses the organizational principles and structure/function relationships in the central nervous system. The course emphasizes the relationship between the gross organization of the Central Nervous System (CNS), its subdivision into specialized regions and the corresponding perceptions of sensory information and the nervous system control of behavior. The cell biology of the neuron, neurotransmitter systems and neuronal injury and repair are also emphasized.
