Units of Lecture: 3
Offered: Every Fall and Spring

Student Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1. demonstrate understanding of fundamental concepts of cellular and molecular neuroscience by definition, explanation, and use of these concepts in examinations.
2. describe and interpret the structure, molecular players, and function of key neuron types within multiple levels of nervous system organization, ranging from genes, proteins, organelles, neurotransmitters, synapses, circuits, and systems.
3. integrate previous knowledge about cell and molecular biology to explain the cellular and molecular basis of sensory, motor, and other major neural systems.
4. analyze and discuss technological applications and ethical concerns of cellular and molecular neuroscience for health- and society-related topics, such as genetic disease, autism, drug abuse, mental illness, neurodegeneration, regeneration, and stem cells.
5. demonstrate the ability to critically analyze scientific research articles in cellular and molecular neuroscience, through assignments in writing, speaking, and/or website design, with further demonstration of understanding the profound impacts of neuroscience on society.
