Teaching

2014

Behavioral and Integrative Neuroscience

Center for Neural Science, New York University
NEURL-UA220

The lecture and laboratory courses address the physiological and anatomical bases of behavior. Lectures and laboratory experiments will emphasize mammalian sensory, motor, regulatory, and motivational mechanisms involved in the control of behavior, and higher mental processes such as those involved in language and memory. Taught with Roozbeh Kiani.

Laboratory in Neural Science II

Center for Neural Science, New York University
NEURL-GA2204

Team-taught, state-of-the-art teaching laboratory in neural science. Material includes neuroanatomy, sensory neurophysiology, modern neuroanatomical tracer techniques, psychophysics, and computational neuroscience

Special Topics: Sensory-Motor Integration

Center for Neural Science, New York University
NEURL-UA302

This Special Topics class will examine how the nervous system integrates sensory and motor signals to guide behavior. We will focus on how vision, audition and proprioception are used to guide movements of the eyes, arm and hand as well as the faculty of speech.Students will learn to read and evaluate the primary literature that employs these techniques to investigate sensory-motor integration.

2012

Special Topics: Neuronal Dynamics

Center for Neural Science, New York University
NEURL-UA302

This Special Topics class will survey various aspects of the dynamics exhibited by neural systems including cortical and sub-cortical regions measured through the spiking activity of individual neurons and groups of neurons, local field potential and electroencephalographic fluctuations and nervous system stimulation. We will study mathematical approaches to characterize nervous system responses. We will focus on how neuronal dynamics at each level of investigation evolve and are associated with behavioral processes and their underlying mechanisms.

Sensory and Motor Systems

Center for Neural Science, New York University
NEURL-GA2203

Team-taught intensive course. Lectures and readings concentrate on neural regulation of sensory and motor systems.
