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 6102 will focus on systems and behavioural neurobiology and will cover topics such as visual and somatosensory systems, motor program generation, autonomic and neuroendocrine functions, motivation, learning, circadian rhythms and sleep/wake cycles and cognitive neuroscience. Evaluation will be based on quizzes, several oral presentations prepared throughout the year, and grant proposals.
