Foundations of Neural Engineering: Molecular Basis of CNS Disease

BME 6938 is an introduction to Neurobiology/Neuroscience and the molecular bases of CNS disease for Biomedical Engineers. Lectures will be given by Dr. Ormerod and students enrolled in the class. Topics will include an introduction to the central nervous system (CNS), its cytoarchitectonic and functional organization, and behaviors that different brain regions control. Finally diseases that affect the CNS and their molecular bases will be described and students will devise BME strategies geared toward treating the disease. This information is essential for Biomedical Engineers to understand in their attempts to repair/rebuild the central nervous system. (3 credits)
