One of the many benefits of a well-rounded liberal arts curriculum is that students are encouraged to explore cross-disciplinary coursework. Introduction to Neuroscience is one example. In the lecture for this course, students discover how neurons (brain cells) work, and learn about complex systems such as vision, learning, and memory, as well as neurological disorders. In the practicum, which will be taught in the new Neuroscience Teaching Lab, students explore how batteries and electrical circuits relate to neurons and take on challenging clinical case studies involving brain diseases.
