This course will describe the activities of nerve cells and how drugs or disease alter their functioning. We will discuss the organization of neuronal networks that serve major mechanisms, such as hearing and memory. We will introduce each lecture with a basic neuroscience topic, then discuss related clinical concepts. This course will contain a mix of new topics and topics covered in Ralston’s previous classes.
Peter Ralston received his M.D. from UCSF and his clinical training in New York and was a postdoctoral fellow at the University College London. He has held faculty positions at Stanford, the University of Wisconsin, and UCSF. At UCSF he directed the medical school course in neuroscience and ran an NIH-supported research lab.
Note: This class does not meet on Monday, February 19 due to the Presidents' Day holiday.
