HST.514 Sensory-Neural Systems: Spatial Orientation from End Organs to Behavior and Adaptation


Class Info

Introduces sensory systems,and multi-sensory fusion using the vestibular and spatial orientation systems as a model. Topics range from end organ dynamics to neural responses, to sensory integration, to behavior, and adaptation, with particular application to balance, posture and locomotion under normal gravity and space conditions. Depending upon the background and interests of the students, advanced term project topics might include motion sickness, astronaut adaptation, artificial gravity, lunar surface locomotion, vestibulo-cardiovascular responses, vestibular neural prostheses, or other topics of interest. Background in neuroscience or systems engineering preferred.

This class has no prerequisites.

HST.514 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by L. Young and F. Karmali.

Lecture occurs 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM on Wednesdays in 36-112.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
