This concentration is not available to students also pursuing a Neuroscience major.
The following courses are required in order to receive a Degree in the Program in Biological Sciences with a concentration in Molecular Neurobiology:
- BIOL_SCI 302-0 Fundamentals of Neurobiology (1 Unit) - Cellular and biochemical approaches to the nervous system, focusing on neuron structure and function. May not receive credit for both BIOL_SCI 302-0 and NEUROSCI 202-0. Prerequisites: BIOL_SCI 215-0, BIOL_SCI 219-0, and (BIOL_SCI 301-0 or BIOL_SCI 308-0)
- BIOL_SCI 303-0 Molecular Neurobiology (1 Unit) - Exploration of the overlap between neurobiology and molecular biology. Prerequisite: BIOL_SCI 302-0 or NEUROSCI 311-0.
- One of:*
BIOL_SCI 305-0 Neurobiology Laboratory (1 Unit) - Hands-on experience in the performance of experiments in cellular neurophysiology. Prerequisites: BIOL_SCI 222-0; BIOL_SCI 302-0 or NEUROSCI 311-0.
- BIOL_SCI 307-0 Brain Structure, Function, and Evolution (1 Unit) - An overview of the evolution of the nervous system and cognition, from the origin of neurons to the structure and function of the human brain. No P/N. Prerequisites: BIOL_SCI 302-0, BIOL_SCI 325-0, or BIOL_SCI 344-0.
Through these courses, students will gain a detailed understanding of molecular, cellular, developmental, structural and functional aspects of nervous systems.
*Reasonable alternatives among BIOL_SCI courses will be considered. You may contact the Associate Director about this.
