Neuroscience 610: Cell and Molecular Neuroscience

Graduate course with topics include voltage sensitive currents, molecular biology of neuronal receptors, synaptic transmission and sensory transduction. Lectures supplemented with experimental demonstrations and discussion sessions. Required for graduate students in the Neuroscience Training Program and in the Physiology Training Program.
Instructors: Chiu, Fettiplace, Jones, Roopra
Semester offered: Fall

Credits: 4

Neuroscience 611: Systems Neuroscience

Introduction to the anatomy and physiology of the mammalian nervous system for graduate students. Topics include neuroanatomy of the human brain, the major sensory and motor systems, and higher order functions. Lab/discussion sections will emphasize readings from the primary literature and hands-on dissections. Required for Neuroscience Training Program graduate students.
Instructors: Bakshi, Baldo, Birn, Hanna, X. Huang, Populin, Rosenbuerg, Thorne
Semester offered: Spring

Credits: 4

Anatomy 625: Brain Cell Culture and Imaging

A team-taught laboratory course for senior undergraduates. The focus is on teaching the students current techniques in neural cell culture and live-cell microscopy.
Instructors: Gomez, Dent
Semester offered: Fall

Credits: 4

Physiology 629: Molecular Mechanisms of Memory

A course for seniors and graduate students focuses on the cell signaling and the resulting structural changes that occur at neuronal synapses during memory formation. The aim is to understand how the synaptic changes underlying memory occur.
Instructors: Lipton
Semester offered: Fall of even years

Credits: 3

Physiology 630: Sensation and Memory in the Cerebral Cortex

A course for seniors and graduate students provides insight into how the cerebral cortex processes sensory information to generate and store cogent representations of the external world through readings in primary literature in lecture and discussion format.
Instructors: Lipton, Banks
Semester offered: Spring of even years

Credits: 3

Anatomy 700: Cytoskeletal Dynamics

A team taught graduate level course that covers mechanisms of cytoskeletal dynamics both in vitro and in vivo. Topics include neuron differentiation, process outgrowth, cell motility and mitosis. The format is a combination of lectures and discussion sections focusing on current literature.
Instructors: Dent, Gomez, et. al.
Semester offered: Spring (odd years)

Credits: 2

Anatomy 765: Developmental Neuroscience

Analysis of neural development with emphasis on experimental approaches. Combination of lectures and discussions of primary literature. Topics include neural induction, patterning, mechanisms of axon guidance, neural crest cell migration and differentiation, cortical development, and synapse formation and elimination.
Instructors: Halloran, Gomez
Semester offered: Spring

Credits: 3

Pathology 751: Cell and molecular biology of aging
