Course Number: NEURL-UA 302
Prerequisite: NEURL-UA 220 (Behavioral & Integrative Neural Science)
The course will be focused on three powerful model systems that have provided seminal insights into the molecular architecture of learning and memory: (i) Aplysia, (ii) Drosophila, and (iii) the Hippocampus.
The goals of the course are threefold:
- Gain a basic understanding of the molecular approaches used in the analysis of learning and memory
- Learn to critically evaluate and present original literature in the field
- Learn to work as a member of a team in preparing and presenting Project Proposals
