CHEM 335 - Neurochemistry and Disease

In this course, students will explore how the biochemistry of the brain influences nervous system function, specifically in relationship to motor and cognitive processes. Students will initially be introduced to fundamental aspects of neuroscience and biochemistry in a traditional lecture format. After this introduction, students will explore the relationship between altered neurochemical activity and disease states using a case study approach. In the lab, students will be introduced to several neurochemistry techniques and will then be asked to use these tools to complete a novel neurochemistry research project. Neurochemistry and Disease meets three times a week for one hour. The lab, which meets for three hours each week, is required for Neuroscience majors, but is optional for all other students taking the course. Cross-listed with CHEM 335 and NSCI 335 .
