Neurobiology of Learning and Memory (BIOL 47138)
This is a one-term seminar course for advanced undergraduate and graduate students. The main focus is to provide an understanding of the principles of learning and memory. In the first part of the course, the cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate the activity of individual neurons will be discussed. Then, based on model systems, we will examine how neurons are assembled in networks to give rise to functional systems. Finally, topics related to the development, maintenance, and plasticity of these networks will be covered.
