Neurology, Neuropsychology and Neurobiology of Aging: Course Description

Literature readings on current neurodegenerative disease research are the focus of the free MIT OpenCourseWare, 'Neurology, Neuropsychology and Neurobiology of Aging.' Team-taught by Professor Suzanne Corkin and Professor Vernon M. Ingram, subtopics include various issues, such as loss of memory and cognitive capabilities, as well as Parkinson's and Alzheimer diseases. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease and multiple sclerosis are discussed. Course materials center on behavioral, clinical and molecular aspects of the brain's age progression. Neurodegenerative case studies are also analyzed throughout the course. The original class was a course option in MIT's brain and cognitive sciences graduate degree program.

This free OpenCourseWare includes a wide-ranging reading list, sample oral presentations and downloadable course resources. To view these course materials, visit the neurology course page.
