Neural Disorders

Neural Disorders
Amazing progress has been made recently in understanding and treating neural disorders like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson's, Lou Gehrig's disease, multiple sclerosis, and others. In this seminar we will examine how these advances were made, and their biological, psychological, and sociological implications. By studying recent research, case histories, and new approaches to treatment, we will examine how such disorders are caused, how they progress, and what psychological effects they have on patients, family, friends, and society. Students will read recent literature, write reviews and position papers, engage in daily discussions, and present on topics of their choosing. 3 hr. sem.
