Neuroscience

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

From Columbia University is an excellent neuroscience tutorial which is really worth spending some time with. The University of Texas Medical School at Houston has made available an online textbook in neuroscience which students should take advantage of. Additional books can be found on Amazon.com and Google. Students should also make sure to follow the Journal of Neuroscience to stay up to date in the field.

To fulfill our mission of educating students, our online tutoring centers are standing by 24/7, ready to assist students who need extra practice in neuroscience.
