    <p><font size="+1">  At Oberlin College we have a Neuroscience
        Department so are able to offer an introductory neuro course as
        well as upper level courses in Neuroanatomy, Neurophysiology,
        Neuroendocrinology, Cognitive Neuroscience, Neurotoxicology,
        Sensory Neuroscience, Neuropharmacology, and Behavioral
        Neuroscience.  We have also sometimes offered Developmental
        Neuroscience and Neuroimmunology.  </font><font size="+1">We
        also have senior seminars that may be Neurobiology of Disease or
        other topics.  </font><font size="+1">The only elective outside
        the department that we accept as an upper level neuro class is
        Abnormal Psychology (which is taught with a strong neuro
        perspective).  <br>
      </font></p>
    <p><font size="+1">We don't have electives from other departments. 
        However, we require all students to take some cognates:  Introductory
        Biology, Introductory Chemisty, and Molecular Biology or Organic
        Chemistry.</font></p>
    <p><font size="+1">If we had courses in Nerve Cell Mechanisms and
        Behavior, Neurobiology of Disease, Animal Behavior,
        Endocrinology, Behavioral Endocrinology, and perhaps Sex,
        Evolution and Biology we might let one of them count as an
        elective.  The decision would be made after the department
        faculty reviewed the syllabus to determine if it had a strong
        neuro component.</font></p>

        <div>We are trying to update our list of neuroscience electives
          for our interdisciplinary program. The curriculum committee is
          requesting clarification about why we have selected these
          specific courses and excluded others. The original list of
          electives was based on what was offered by other programs. 
          Since they have asked for a response from me by this <b><u>Wed
              night 3/6</u> </b>I'm hoping you all can help save me the
          time of searching scores of web pages. Right now we are just
          looking at the biology electives. </div>

          <div>I am working to educate the curriculum committee about
            Neuroscience - I was asked what Molecular Biology has to do
            with Neuroscience - so any other comments are welcome and
            would be greatly appreciated. How have you made decisions
            about which electives to include? Do you look at learning
            objectives? Are there any courses that someone has requested
            be added but were decided to be not appropriate for the
            major and, if so, why? Some have suggested including all
            biology courses, including Plants and Fungi. What criteria
            would you use to include or exclude a course as a neuro
            elective?</div>
