This course is designed to cover the field of neuroscience from a cellular and molecular level. The site features a comprehensive reading list
complete with links to abstracts, and assignments
tailored to graduate students to prepare them to be neuroscience researchers.
Subject covers all major areas of cellular and molecular neurobiology including excitable cells and membranes, ion channels and receptors, synaptic transmission, cell type determination, axon guidance and targeting, neuronal cell biology, synapse formation and plasticity. Includes lectures and exams, and involves presentation and discussion of primary literature. Focus on major concepts and recent advances in experimental neuroscience.
