MCB 148: The Neurobiology of Pain, Spring 2017
This course explores the neurobiological systems and mechanisms underlying both acute and chronic pain. Topics will include nociceptive/sensory systems, molecular basis and modulation of pain, neuroanatomy of peripheral and central pain circuits, pain pathologies, pharmacological and non pharmacological treatments. The emphasis is on understanding basic neurobiological concepts underlying pain systems and reading/discussing the primary scientific research in the field.
TF duties include leading the discussion section, grading, creating assignments, and (optional) giving a lecture during the semester. Research background in pain-related neuroscience is not required. For more information, contact Dr. Ryan Draft (firstname.lastname@example.org).
