Bio 171*-First-Year Opportunity: Neuroscience Futures I
How do we learn about the brain?
First-Year Opportunity: Neuroscience Futures I (fall)
Mary Lambo, Ph.D. – Lecturer in Biology
Description: In this seminar course for first-year students, students learn about how neuro-biologists conduct and communicate research. We focus our discussion on primary research papers written by WUSTL neuro-biologists, who visit the class to present their work. Discussion then focuses on the formulation of scientific questions, evaluation of evidence and interpreting data within the context of a broader field. Course is for first-year, non-transfer students only.
* This course engages first year students in discussions about current biological research. It is optional and does not replace requirements for the Biology major or for pre-health careers. See the Handbook for Biology Majors for details of Biology major requirements.
