Subject: NEUR405/BSCI455: Neuroscience Lab in Fall 2021

Description:
NEUR405/BSCI455: Neuroscience Lab

BSCI454 is morphing into a new 3-credit course offered for the first time in
fall 2021. BSCI455 will fulfill UL lab requirements for PHNB, GENB, and CEBG
specializations.

Dr. Hilary Bierman, who has been teaching BSCI454 since 2011, has used
feedback received from students to develop this new and improved course.

The weekly lab period is now 4 hours, which means more time collecting and
analyzing data in the lab and less struggling at home with data analysis. The
extra time allows for some new interesting lab experiments!

Dr. Bierman will lead a new 2-hour lecture/discussion designed to enhance the
learning experience in the laboratory. During this time, students will gain
background and context for the labs and participate in discussions and
presentations of scientific literature, neuronal modeling, and workshop
sessions to help develop their group projects.

Assessments: There are no exams. This course is group-work heavy but includes
significantly more individual assessments than BSCI454.

Note: Effective ONLY Fall 2021, BSCI353 may be taken as a co-requisite
instead of as a prerequisite.
