NEUR*3100 Molecular Mechanisms of Neurological Disorders F (3-0) [0.50]
This course will follow the life of nervous system cells from birth, through their functional life, and ending in ageing and degenerative disease. Focus will be on the molecular and cellular events that govern these processes and the diseases and pathologies, such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, that arise as a consequence of their dysfunction. Finally, students will be introduced to the new and rapidly advancing field of adult neural stem cells and the promises and potential problems of their use in treating many of the diseases that will have been discussed throughout.
