KINE 3670: Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience with Applications to Health. COURSE SCHEDULE KINE 3670: Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience with Applications to Health. TEXTBOOK: Dale Purves, George J Augustine, David Fitzpatrick, Lawrence C Katz, AnthonySamuel LaMantia, James O McNamara, and S th Edition.. Mark Williams. Neuroscience 5 COURSE DIRECTOR: Dr. Dorota Anna Crawford Email: [email protected] Course website: http:www.yorku.cadakcKINE4512 TA: Christine Wong. Email: [email protected] GRADING: Midterm exam 1 30 Midterm exam 2 30 Final Exam 40 Exam relevant material will consist of (i) the content of the chapters from the textbook listed in the course syllabus and (ii) all the material covered in the lectures and power point slides. Exams will consist of multiple choice, short answer and essaytype questions. It is strongly advised that you attend classes. If you miss a midterm exam for a documented medical or other reason the weight of the missed exam will be transferred to the other exam. There will be no makeup exams. If you miss the final exam, with appropriate documentation, you will be required to write a makeup exam. Proper documentation must be delivered to the course director NO LATER THAN 1 WEEK FOLLOWING THE EXAM. Do not approach the course director to have your grade increased. THE ANSWER IS NO!! Any grade adjustments will be applied to EVERYONE, no special circumstances will be granted. No extra assignments will be available for anyone to write. COURSE GOALS: The course will help you to gain a deeper understanding of the basic molecular and cellular mechanisms of the brain, and their applications to various disease processes. The course covers topics ranging from neuronal structure and function, communication at the synapse, membrane receptors and intra and intercellular signaling systems within the sensory, motor and memory systems. The course will also cover the cellular and molecular processes underlying neuronal development, including differentiation of nerve cells, migration of neurons, mechanisms of axonal growth and guidance, target recognition and synapse formation, and the basis of synaptic specificity. Applications to specific disease processes will be described to illustrate the clinical applications of basic neuroscience. This course will provide basic understanding of molecular mechanisms underlying brain dysfunctions that contribute to disorders of the nervous system and rationales for pharmacological treatments.
