Course Descriptions

Course descriptions are provided here for only those courses with a temporary course number such as BME 6086-XX. Undergraduate and Graduate course descriptions are provided at the BME website under either the BS Degree Program Description or the Graduate Program Handbook.

BME 6086-001 Special Topics in BME: Sensory Neuroscience Laboratory
Techniques employed in the experimental investigation of sensory neuroscience. Laboratory exercises in psychophysics and assessment of human and animal sensory abilities. Elementary computer programming is used to synthesize and process sound files and analyze psychophysics data.  A one-hour lecture and two two-hour labs each week.

BME 6086-012 Special Topics in BME: Eukaryotic Cell Biology
4 credits.The class is organized into 13 modules that cover key areas in the field of Cell Biology. Each module consists of two lectures followed by a discussion session. The discussion sessions will usually involve the detailed consideration of a research article. In addition to lectures and paper discussions, the course will include two practical learning experiences. First, in conjunction with a paper writing assignment, students will serve as “reviewers” for manuscripts from their classmates, following a format that would be typical for a submitted journal article. The faculty discussion group leader will then serve as the “editor”, providing feedback to both the student author and reviewers. Second, the course will conclude with a “Cell Biology Meeting”, which will be organized like a scientific conference, and where students will provide short oral presentations on their paper topics. Students will also be assigned organizational and leadership roles in the Cell Biology Meeting, such as serving as session chairs and keynote speakers.
