NEURBIO 232 is taught every other year in Winter Quarter.
This course will introduce students to the latest research on regenerative neurobiology. Both basic stem cell discoveries and their potential clinical application to brain disorders will be examined. The goal is to discuss the opportunities and pitfalls in the potential application of neural stem cells to brain repair. The course will be relevant to those interested in this exciting new field of brain research as well as those concerned with its distinctive policy and regulatory implications.
