NSCI 225 - Human Neuroanatomy

Functional anatomy of the human nervous system on both the microscopic and macroscopic scales. Focuses on the structures of the peripheral nervous system, spinal cord, and brain, and how they work together to achieve behavior. Lectures and a required laboratory (gross and microscopic anatomy). Prerequisite: NSCI 111.

NSCI 255 - Neuroregeneration

Clinical neuroscience of injury and healing in the human nervous system, factors leading to different outcomes, and the impact of successful and failed repair on functional recovery. Explores cutting-edge approaches to treating neurological disease. Prerequisite: NSCI 111 or BIOL 261.

NSCI 270 - Diseases of the Nervous System
