Welcome to Neurobiology of Disease. We meet Tuesdays from 9 - 9:50 AM, and Thursdays from 2 - 4 PM, in Merrill Science Center room 315. (Go down the hall next to Lecture hall 4, and turn right.)
We'll study neurological diseases with the help of guest faculty who are mostly Amherst alumni doing research on the diseases. Most of the reading for the course will be in the form of scientific articles available on electronic reserves.
Tuesday classes will provide background for reading the articles to be discussed on the Thursday 9 days later, to give time to read the papers.
See the left-hand menu for the syllabus, required work, and information about the guest faculty.
