This introductory course will explore a range of topics and issues in the study of neuroscience. Specifically, the course will focus on the relationship between neuroscience and the arts and the humanities. The course will treat the humanities and sciences as partners working together on the same problems. Usually, three topics are covered per semester. Examples of topics covered include: the neuroscience of emotions, play behavior, film, visual and artistic perspective, space, time. Other topics may be covered. Assignments will include weekly quizzes, class discussion, and a thesis paper. NEUR 105 is a non-majors introductory course geared towards first- and second-year students, although others may take it. Anyone who plans to major or concentrate in neuroscience will need to take Introduction to Neuroscience (NEUR 112/212). NEUR 105 can be paired with NEUR 112/212 in order to satisfy the Natural Science distribution requirement. This course is repeatable for credit. However, this course taken twice or with a NEUR special topics course does not satisfy the natural sciences diversification. No prerequisite.
