This is a 3 credit course for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows (PhD and/or MD), and others interested in the topic. It is designed to provide a survey of some of the major neurological and psychiatric disorders for the non-clinician. Each session will focus on a particular disorder and will include a patient presentation (live or by videotape), and a discussion of the etiology, epidemiology, pathophysiology, and treatment of that disorder. It meets once a week for two and a half hours, combines lectures, discussions, and video or live patient presentations, and is taught by a combination of clinical and basic science faculty. Assignments will include an assigned chapter or review article plus one peer reviewed article each week, and the preparation of a grant proposal on an aspect of neurobiology of disease.
