Neuroscience can be regarded as the scientific investigation of the nervous system. Originally the discipline was viewed as a branch of biology, but modern neuroscience is an interdisciplinary effort involving overlap with psychology, mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering, computer science, and medicine.

A thorough course in neuroscience will involve study of the following areas:

  • Electrical signals of nerve cells
  • Voltage-dependent membrane permeability
  • Channels and transporters
  • Synaptic transmission
  • Neurotransmitters, receptors, and their effects
  • Molecular signaling within neurons
  • Synaptic plasticity
  • The somatic sensory system
  • Pain
  • Vision: the eye
  • Central visual pathways
  • The auditory system
  • The vestibular system
  • The chemical senses
  • Lower motor neuron circuits and motor control
  • Upper motor neuron control of the brainstem and spinal cord
  • Modulation of movement by the basal ganglia
  • Modulation of movement by the cerebellum
  • Eye movements and sensory motor integration
  • The visceral motor system
  • Early brain develoment
  • Construction of neural circuits
  • Modification of brain circuits as a result of experience
  • Repair and regeneration in the nervous system
  • The association cortices
  • Speech and language
  • Sleep and wakefulness
  • Emotions
  • Sex, sexuality, and the brain
  • Memory
