Neuroscience 6101.03 and 6102.03 are Neuroscience 6100X/Y.06 divided into terms A and B for suitable incorporation into non-Neuroscience programs. NESC 6101 will focus on cellular and molecular neurobiology and will cover topics such as membrane potentials, synaptic transmission, second messengers, trophic factors, cell differentiation and neurodegeneration. Evaluation will be based on quizzes, several oral presentations prepared throughout the year, and grant proposals.
