A. Two Parts 1. Lecture 2. Discussion B. Not a traditional “survey” course C. Two Halves 1. Cellular Neuroscience: Basic principles of neuronal structure and function 2. Systems neuroscience: Visual system; Motor system D. The course moves quickly - don’t fall behind III. Lectures A. The lecture hall is very wide - four screens to accommodate everyone’s seating location. I would love to walk around the room a lot, but I am pinned behind the lectern to a large degree to use the cursor as a pointer (I can only use a laser pointer on one screen, which would not be seen by the large majority of the class). I will look into using a remote cursor if available. B. Each lecture will begin with an outline of topics that will be covered in the lecture. C. Each lecture topic is typically organized into a 2 part structure: The first part will introduce the phenomenon (e.g. the action potential), it’s properties and characteristics. The second part will delve into the underlying mechanisms of the phenomenon. We have found that this approach leads to a greater depth of understanding of the material.
