I will be teaching IBS 575, Cerebral Cortex: Structures and Systems, during the Spring 2011 semester. I encourage you to make this course known to graduate students or highly qualified undergraduates who would like to take a comprehensive course on the organization of cerebral cortex.
I wish to make this course accessible for as many people as possible. Tentatively, I intend to teach it on Tuesdays from 5 – 8 pm at the Yerkes Primate Center. (Students should be aware that the Yerkes security gate is locked at 5 pm, so they will need to be prompt.) This time is not set in stone, however, and I will consider other times if there are serious conflicts with other courses.
Attached is a copy of the syllabus for the previous version of this course. It’s important to note, however, that there will be some changes in the 2011 offering. First, I will be teaching without a co-instructor. One result of this is that there will be less emphasis on functional imaging and more on evolution, development, and structural imaging (especially DTI and related techniques). This is not a methods course: the focus will be on results and interpretation.
All the best,
