Physiological Methods in Neuroscience
The goal of this course is to provide a basic fluency with the technical approaches available to modern neuroscience to graduate students beginning a career in the filed. The course assumes a basic familiarity with biology and psychology and an undergraduate level mastery of neuro-scientific concepts. The course will begin by building on these foundations in order to make a functional understanding of the methods presented possible. Students will make use of a selection of techniques during independent laboratory sessions. By the end of the course student should be able to critically read papers utilizing the techniques taught in the course and solve research problems in their own careers by the appropriate selection and application of technical approaches.
