Seminar class in neurobiology focusing on synaptic transmission and neurobiological diseases of development and aging. Papers will introduce class to details of methods including optogenetics,  microscopy, genetic manipulations and electrophysiology. Major questions in the field of neurobiology will be introduced through recent high-impact papers and live lectures and interviews with off-campus research labs that authored the paper. We will focus on connecting basic research to neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s, ALS, Epilepsy and Autism.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
