This 1-credit UB Seminar is a discussion-based course that will use a variety of formats (readings from the Old Testament, books, movies, documentaries, popular TV shows, and a guided tour of UB?s Brain Museum) to explore the underlying anomalies in neurological cases. A review of normal neuroanatomy and function will lead to a discussion of how these are disrupted in the particular case and consequent impact on global function. Case studies will be selected to cover a broad range of neurological systems (vision, speech, memory, personality). By integrating illnesses/injures concurrent to learning the physiology/anatomy, students will not only gain an appreciation and understanding of normal neurological function, but more importantly, an appreciation of the resiliency and adaptability of the neurological system, and most importantly, of the human spirit.
Enrollment Requirements
Prerequisites: Students who have already successfully completed the UB seminar course may not repeat this course. If you have any questions regarding enrollment for this course, please contact your academic advisor.
  Course Description
The one credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps transition to UB through an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 198 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.
