The course will be organized around case stories in the fields of neurology and neuroscience.  Several of the case stories are written by neuroscientist and medical doctor V.S. Ramachandran and by neurologist Oliver Sacks.  They both write about patients with neurological deficits in a way that is captivating and fascinating for lay people, but also with enough detail and explanation of the underlying brain mechanisms to be useful as a first view into neuroscience. Articles by other authors from magazines such as The New Yorker, New York Times Magazine and Scientific American will also be used in the course. The course is aimed at honors students with an interest in the topic, but who may not necessarily be science majors. No prior knowledge of neurology or neuroscience is required.
