Quick, Ph.D. mquick@usc.edu ADM 103 0-3551 absolutely anytime-- just contact me Credit: This is a 4 unit course that includes lectures, clinical correlations, and case-based learning situations led by both the instructor and students.

These disorders span the range of neurobiological inquiry from development (e.g. mental retardation, spina bifida, cerebral palsy) to signaling (e.g., myasthenia gravis, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis), to anatomical systems (e.g., Parkinson's disease, pain, amblyopia), to combinations of fields (e.g., schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, addiction).
