NEURO 498 - Honors Research Project in Neuroscience I

Individual study and research. Honors research thesis completed under the supervision of a member of the Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute (NMHI). Taken in conjunction with NEURO 499, this 6-credit course is the first part of a 12-credit program in two terms resulting in an honours research thesis in neuroscience. Students spend the term in the laboratory of a faculty member from the Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute (NMHI) to carry out a research project related to current topics and methodologies in the supervisor's area of expertise in cellular, molecular, systems, or cognitive neuroscience. During NEURO 498 (Neuroscience I), students will develop background knowledge in an area of neuroscience research, design an experimental plan (in conjunction with their supervisor) to investigate a particular research question, learn the methodologies to be used, and begin experiments to answer this research question. Completion of this course requires a written proposal summarizing background information and experimental design and methods for the project as well as an oral presentation to an examining committee. Restricted to students in the Honors program in Neuroscience. Registration must be approved by the Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute (NMHI). Prerequisite: Consent of the Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute (NMHI).


NEURO 499 - Honors Research Project in Neuroscience II

Individual laboratory research. Part two of a honors research thesis completed under the supervision of a member of the Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute (NMHI). Taken in conjunction with NEURO 498, this 6-credit course is the second part of a 12-credit program in two terms resulting in an honors research thesis in neuroscience. Upon satisfactory progress in first-term, NEURO 499 students will continue their research and produce a written honors thesis on their project. An oral presentation and thesis defense will occur at the end of term and be evaluated. Registration must be approved by the Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute (NMHI). Prerequisite: Consent of the Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute (NMHI).
