Course Resources

Required Textbook

Henley, C. Foundations of Neuroscience. Open Edition. (Free online text. Links to assigned readings will be provided each week).

Required Technology

Students will need access to a laptop or tablet (laptop recommended for exams) and access to reliable internet. A phone and/or webcam is recommended for video discussions.

Learning Technologies

We will use three technologies for learning in NEU 300: Microsoft Class Teams, Flipgrid, and Desire 2 Learn (D2L). 

You should consistently check your D2L email (or forward your D2L email to your MSU email)

    Class Teams Private Chat

    Instead of communicating by email, I ask all students to contact me (or Nikhil) via the Chat tool in the Class Teams. Only you and I can see the content in a private chat. Please review your notification settings within the Class Team, so you receive notifications when we reply.


    Updates and information will often be posted on the Class Team. Please make sure you review your notification settings, and check your “Activity” tab in the upper left-hand corner of your Teams app. 

    Academic Responsibility

    It is the responsibility of each student to generate original work for all assignments. This means all submitted work must be in your own words. Plagiarizing from any of, but not limited to, the following: the internet, readings, videos, popular press articles, other students, and/or research articles is grounds for receiving a zero for that assignment. IMPORTANT: This means that even though you are working in teams, the work you submit must be in your own words. Please see Course Policies for more information.
