Following the close of nominations the Registrar shall mail to each
candidate a list of the names of all the candidates running for election to
the Board of Governors and the Senate.
Where a candidate wishes to withdraw a nomination after the close of
nominations this must be done in writing, bear the signature of the nominee
and be in the hands of the Co-ordinator of Elections in the Registrar's Office
by 4.00 p.m. on the last day of the first term (Wednesday, December 21,

enrolment in all programs in the Faculty of Arts was reported to have increased 12.5%.

Graduate Program in Neurosciences
Ph.D. and M.Sc. in Neuroscience (Calendar Statement)
Although there is no Department of Neuroscience at U.B.C, studies leading to the
M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Neuroscience are available. The Neuroscience
Program is administered by the Neuroscience Advisory Committee which is
responsible to the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
The Neuroscience Program is a flexible one intended to accommodate the diverse
background of students wishing to enter it, and also take account of the broad
nature of neuroscience research. The program will accept for advanced degrees
candidates with undergraduate majors in a variety of disciplines including but not
restricted to Biology, Biochemistry, Computer Sciences, Engineering,
Mathematics, Neurosciences, Pharmacology, Physics, Physiology, Psychology and
Zoology. Graduates in Medicine (i.e. M.D.) may also be accepted into the
program. Acceptance into the program is dependent upon (a) meeting the general
entrance reguirements of the Faculty of Graduate Studies, (b) acceptance by the
Neuroscience Admissions Committee, and (c) obtaining a letter of acceptance
from an individual department. APPENDIX B'

FACULTY OF GRADUATE STUDIES
Graduate Program in Neurosciences
Ph.D. and M.Sc. in Neuroscience  (Calendar statement continued)
The student's graduate program will be decided upon by the student, the adviser
and the student's committee. The formal requirements in this regard, other than
those set forth by the Faculty, are as follows. The program will aim for flexibility
so that the individual needs of students with different interests in neuroscience
can, as far as possible, be accommodated. Course requirements will normally be
taken in the first two (2) years of the program. During the first year, however, all
students should participate in a core program consisting of courses in
(I) Neuroanatomy (Anatomy 510), (2) Neurophysiology (Physiology 425),
(3) Neurochemistry (Psychiatry 415), (4) Neuropharmacology (Pharmacology 502),
(5) Psychobiology (Psychology 504). Courses taken at other universities or in the
undergraduate program at U.B.C. will be taken into consideration in planning the
student's core course curriculum. With these courses as a base, additional
advanced course and seminar requirements will vary with the particular interests
and needs of the student as determined by the student and his Supervisory
Committee.
A student's committee for the M.Sc. degree will include at least one member of
the Advisory Committee, and the student's committee for a Ph.D. degree will
include at least two members of the Advisory Committee. The Advisory
Committee will monitor the progress of all students in the Neuroscience program.
Additional information on the graduate program in Neuroscience can be obtained
directly from the Chairman of the Neuroscience Advisory Committee, or from the
Dean of Graduate Studies.
The following undergraduate and graduate courses are offered in the field of
Neuroscience:
Anatomy 405 Physiology and biophysics of animal cells
Anatomy 425 Elements of neuroanatomy
