NEUS 351. Human Neuroscience Laboratory. 3 Hours.

This laboratory course will provide an opportunity to gain expertise in the quantification and analysis of human behavior and neurophysiological signals using advanced electrophysiological techniques such as GSR, EOG, EEG, or ERP.

Prerequisite: PSY 310 with a minimum grade of D or PSY 330 with a minimum grade of D or PSY 333 with a minimum grade of D or PSY 335 with a minimum grade of D.


NEUS 447. Neuro Research Capstone I. 4 Hours.

This course is designed to permit students to learn a research technique and obtain training in the use of scientific methodology in the field of neuroscience. Specific course objectives include: hands-on experience in a neuroscience research technique, learning appropriate data collection and analysis techniques, and learning how conclusions based on empirical data are formed and disseminated as research articles.

Prerequisite: PSY 200 with a minimum grade of D or BIO 250 with a minimum grade of D.


NEUS 448. Neuro Research Capstone II. 0 Hours.

This course is designed to permit students to learn a research technique and obtain training in the use of scientific methodology in the field of neuroscience under conditions where awarding course credit is inappropriate. Such conditions include research conducted as part of a paid stipend, research conducted in off-campus laboratories, or research conducted as part of another college course. Specific course objectives include: hands-on experience in a neuroscience research technique, learning appropriate data collection and analysis techniques, and learning how conclusions based on empirical data are formed and disseminated as research articles.


NEUS 480. Advanced Topics in Neuroscience. 1 to 4 Hours.

Selected topics in Neuroscience at the advanced level.
