Course Title: MSC1086H: Integrative Perspectives in Conciousness and Self-Awareness
Instructor: Professor Jose Perez Velazquez and Professor Marina Fratseva
Session Offered: Not Offered
Description:

How we interpret reality depends to a large extent on the self-concept, how we see ourselves and other selves. The evolution of higher nervous systems that improved the control and rapid adaptability of behavioural responses resulted in the almost inevitable consequence of the emergence of the experiential feeling of self: the brain is not only aware of its surroundings but also of its own functioning. This course offers a comprehensive depiction of the fundamentals of cognition, focussed on consciousness and self-awareness phenomena, presently foremost themes of neuroscience research. While the current trend in the neurosciences is to develop sophisticated studies that benefit from an impressive arsenal of cellular and molecular methodologies, and thus end up with an overabundance of empirical data generated under experimental conditions that try to isolate the phenomenon under scrutiny in supposedly controlled laboratory settings, this course introduces a high-level perspective, searching for simplification amongst the structural and functional complexity of nervous systems by consideration of the distributed interactions that underlie the collective behaviour of the system. Perhaps by focussing on the perspective of the dynamics of organized activities, apparently diverse phenomena become conceptually closer.

To comprehend the phenomena of consciousness and self/other awareness, a multidisciplinary approach that considers not only neuroanatomic-physiological and psychological aspects but also philosophical considerations and insights from physics and mathematics, will be used. The tentative course schedule is presented below. The sessions cover notions from several disciplines. Specifically, we will discuss brain pathologies that shed light onto the nature of consciousness and self-processing/awareness, and will review not only empirical data, but will also draw from the humanities. There will be an overview of methodologies to understand cognition and behaviour, including concepts from physics. There will be an exploration of cognitive-based therapies that are used in the clinic and the general usefulness of contemplative methods to gain deeper insight into these matters. Rather than emphasizing facts and details, this course will focus on concepts and ideas, supplemented by extensive additional readings that will facilitate the student’s continued exploration of individual topics. Students are encouraged to take a look in advance at the “booklet” (the compilation of all handouts) that accompanies the course, to decide whether or not these materials are of interest to the individual. Due to the nature of this course, classes will require substantial periods of discussion and interaction. About one half of each session can easily be devoted to discussion and/or presentations by the students of specific course materials.

This course may be of particular value to those interested in the workings of the brain and its relation to behaviour, and is suitable for graduate students in neuroscience, biophysics and computational/theoretical neuroscience, psychiatry, neurology, and related fields. General background knowledge in basic neuroscience, neurophysiology and neurochemistry is highly advisable. Many lectures are based on the book “The Brain-Behaviour Continuum―the subtle transition between sanity and insanity” (World Scientific/Imperial College Press, http://www.worldscibooks.com/lifesci/8088.html).

Course Title: MSC1087H: Neuroimaging Methods using Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Instructor: Professor Adrian Crawley
Session Offered: 20191
Description:

Over the last two decades, the study of human brain structure and function has come to rely on the latest developments in medical imaging technology, especially magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This course will provide fundamental knowledge relating to the neuroimaging methods commonly used to estimate spatially resolved maps of brain structure, such as grey matter volume and white matter connectivity. The rest of the course will focus on techniques used in functional MRI (fMRI) to measure the blood flow changes associated with neuronal activity. The course is primarily intended for students who will use neuroimaging techniques in their own thesis projects, and need to have a solid understanding of the physical and mathematical principles behind these tools in order to acquire good data and analyze them appropriately. Relevant physiology of cerebral blood flow and brain metabolism will also be reviewed. The specific statistical considerations for neuroimaging – in particular whether the average spatial maps of some structural or functional measure differ significantly between a patient group and a control group – have resulted in the new field of statistical parametric mapping, which will be covered in depth.

Course Title: MSC1088H: Brain Positron Emission Tomography
Instructor: Professor Romina Mizrahi
Session Offered: Not offered
Description:

Positron emission tomography (PET) has become an important tool for the early detection of disease, the understanding of basic molecular aspects of brain function and the evaluation of medical treatment. This course will build on a multidisciplinary team involving chemists, physicists, image scientists, computer scientists and clinician scientists currently investigating brain diseases such as schizophrenia, mood disorders, addictions, geriatrics and movement disorders.

The principal objectives of this course are to review the fundamental concepts of PET imaging and to convey an understanding of the opportunities that PET technology offers in brain research and drug development. Specific issues will be addressed in a perspective to answer basic research questions:

1) The chemistry of labelling compounds with short-lived positron-emitting radionuclides; 2) The design of PET radiopharmaceuticals – impact on interpretation of scanning data (e.g. position of labelling, metabolism, drugs vs. ligands); 3) PET instrumentation – how does a PET scanner or a cyclotron work (physics)?; 4) How PET data is analysed (kinetic modelling, image analysis); How PET can be used as a tool in brain research and drug development.

Course Title: MSC1089H: The Biopsychosocial Basis of Mental Health and Addictive Disorders
Instructor: Professor Tony George
Session Offered: 20189
Description:

Prof. George and colleagues will review the biopsychosocial basis of mental health and addictive disorders from the perspectives of etiology, pathophysiology, clinical phenomenology and diagnostics, genetics, neuroimaging, and treatment which have all contributed to our increasing understanding of psychiatric and substance use disorders from a biomedical (“disease”) concept. The role of stigma and recovery would also be discussed from a biobehavioural and social determinants of health perspective, to produce an integrated perspective on mental health and addictive disorders. The contemporary approach to treatment of these disorders would also be discussed which emphasizes biological, psychological and social policy and prevention perspectives.

Instructor: Professor Lucy Osborne
Session Offered: 20189 Y
Description:

This course should encourage students to develop an approach to the genetic analysis, investigation and treatment of human disease.

Introduction to molecular approaches: Students will be introduced to useful tools and concepts that enable the study of a wide spectrum of human diseases. These include such topics as: population identification and sample collection; genome scanning with subsequent linkage analysis; mutation detection methods; copy number variation analysis and the use of animal models.

Specific examples of the genetics of human disease: In the body of the course, a series of 16 lectures will cover the genetic analysis of specific diseases. Lecturers will be encouraged to discuss: a brief description of the disease they intend to cover (eg: the basic clinical presentation and pathophysiology); the approach to the study of this disease; and the molecular changes that occur. Integration with animal models and the potential for human gene therapy will be encouraged. Each lecture will provide an example of the application of molecular tools to the investigation of a specific human disease. Lecturers will be encouraged to provide weekly reading assignments.

The student will be required to prepare a Letter of Intent for a proposal that discusses the genetic analysis of a specific human disease (due February). Students are advised to identify a preceptor to help with their proposal idea. Preceptors are often chosen from the course lecturers, but students are not restricted to these individuals. While the preceptor will act in an advisory capacity, the student must carry out the initial problem identification and the preparation of the proposal. Considerable latitude will be allowed in the choice of project, preceptor and approach to the disease. The student will also present a final 10 minute, in-class slide presentation of this proposal (in March). As a final assignment, the student will write a short News & Views type article about a paper or papers in the filed of molecular medicine that have been published during the past calendar year. The topic must be unrelated to their thesis.
