The main course I teach is Vertebrate Neurobiology, which is concerned with the cellular, biophysical and integrative features of the nervous system.

My goals in teaching the operations of the brain are to make each lecture not only informative and clear, but also exciting, inspiring and fun. I want my students to see the same excitement and elegance in the nervous system that I see, and experience the same excitement that I experienced when I first learned about it.
