Associate Professor

This course will explore the physiological and psychological components of neurological disorders, focusing on changes in cognition and delving into how a patient might experience a disease process. Class content is rooted in basic neuroscience and informed by the patient experience. We will consider neurological disorder processes through different neurolenses, including the experience of the cell, the brain, the body, the caregiver/family, the community, and society. 
Students need to have taken BIOL3050 or PSYC2200 or an equivalent course to provide a neuroscience background.
