NACS728F
Selected Topics in Neuroscience and Cognitive Science; Introduction to Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
An introduction to functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Students will be taught about formulating testable hypotheses with fMRI, utilizing basic methods in fMRI studies, and understanding existing limitations of fMRI studies in the literature.
NACS728J
Selected Topics in Neuroscience and Cognitive Science; Neurobiology of Chemosensory Systems
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg
Cross-listed with BIOL708Q. Credit only granted for BSCI339D, BSCI357, BIOL708Q, or NACS728J.

Chemosensation is essential for all forms of life, orchestrating several physiological processes, such as feeding, sexual behaviors, and body homeostasis. This course will review the function of chemosensory systems, including olfaction, gustatory and central chemoreception, among others. Through lectures and discussion of papers, we will examine the cell biology, systems neuroscience, and evolutionary aspects in these chemosensory systems.
NACS728M
Selected Topics in Neuroscience and Cognitive Science; Grant Writing
Credits: 2
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Instruction in grant-writing skill, introduction to resources, discussions on how to make your grant competitive, and insight into the review process. The goal will be to have each participant submit an NRSA.
