Teaching the Principles of Neurobiology
Assistant Teaching Professor Andrea C. Nicholas (Neurobiology and Behavior) is the author of a new series of online learning tutorials published by Garland. Professor Nicholas’ tutorials will accompany a new textbook titled “Principles of Neurobiology,” by Stanford Professor Liqun Luo. The tutorials will help supplement student classroom learning with the online use of engaging stories, including important experimental and medical examples. “Developing modules for Luo’s Principles of Neurobiology was a tremendously fun project. It was rewarding to incorporate some of the inspiring research being done in the department of Neurobiology and Behavior right here at UCI,” said Nicholas.
“I hope the tutorials will excite students with the kind of pioneering research stories and thought-provoking neurophenomena that made me want to study neuroscience.”
