Human Neuroscience (HNSC) Course Descriptions

College of Liberal and Fine Arts


HNSC 1013  Introduction to Human Neuroscience
(3-0) 3 hours credit.
This course introduces students to system level human neuroscience using noninvasive imaging methodology (MRI, PET, TMS) as the primary tool to explore different motor, perceptual (e.g., vision, audition), and cognitive systems (e.g., attention, memory) in the human brain.

HNSC 2013  Disorders of the Human Nervous System
(3-0) 3 hours credit. Prerequisite: HNSC 1013.
This course explores the mechanism of action of disorders of the human nervous system (e.g., autism, aphasia, motor disorders). Based on a system level approach to the human brain, each disorder is introduced with attention to the primary behavioral symptoms. The application of noninvasive brain imaging to explore the mechanism of action of disease, and diagnosis and treatment of disorders is covered whenever possible.

HNSC 3013  Introduction to Imaging Meta-Analysis
(3-0) 3 hours credit. Prerequisites: HNSC 1013 and a course in statistics.
This course is designed to provide students with the tools to conduct system level meta-analysis of brain imaging data. Students are introduced to meta-analysis, including the analytic tools of this statistical methodology. Students use an existing database of imaging data to conduct a meta-analysis in an area of interest.
