Cellular Neurobiology

NEU 301/MOL 310

Info tab content
This course focuses on understanding how neurons and the molecules they express contribute to brain function. Topics covered include the structure and electrical properties of neurons, cell fate decisions, synapse formation and plasticity, neuromodulation, and the function of simple neural circuits. We will also discuss molecular and genetic tools for interrogating the nervous system. Examples are typically drawn from studies of sensory and motor system development and function in animals amenable to molecular and cellular level investigation. Students will have ample opportunity to read and discuss primary literature throughout the course.
