Neuroscience 400. Senior Seminar in Neuroscience

The field of neuroscience has been shaped by many diverse disciplines and historic advances in anatomy, perception, histology, and philosophy.  By studying the development of any specific field, we learn about the nature of science and human exploration.  Therefore, we will also attempt to learn from our past to predict the future of brain science.   In this class, we will bring together ideas from psychology, biology, chemistry, physics, philosophy, religion, and mathematics which have all contributed to the discovery of the inner workings of the brain and defining the essence of mind.
