The proposed course of Neurobiology and Behavior will be a 3-credit course designed primarily for junior and senior undergraduates. Interested sophomore may take this course with basic biology and cell physiology background. The syllabus for this proposed course is modified from the following two courses that I have taught at the Division of Biological Sciences in the University of Missouri, Columbia since 1975. Biology 4500/7500 Neurobiology (taught every fall semester) and Biology 4560/7560 Sensory Physiology and Behavior (taught every other winter semester). The course materials have been accumulated and revised over the past 35 years. The power point presentations for each of ten topics are now available for posting in the website for students to download. This course has been very popular with high rating among upper level students who are mostly pre-professional students (pre-med, pre-dental students, pre-graduate). I had offered a Neurobiology course at Tunghai University in 1984 when I was a visiting professor at National Yangming Medical University. There were 16 students for this class and some of them are now neuroscientists working either in the institutions in Taiwan or in the USA. It is my understanding that there is yet to have a formal Neurobiology course offered on a regular basis at the Department of Life Sciences. By offering this course of neuroscience, I am hoping that enough interest and demand will be generated to set the stage for a regular offering of this course in the near future by the faculty member of the home department.
