GS14 1223 Neurocircuits and Behavior

Do Monte, Fabricio; Tong, Qingchun: Three semester hours. Spring, annually. Grading System: Letter Grade. Prerequisites: GS14 1214: Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience, GS14 1014: Systems Neuroscience, and consent of instructor.

This is an advanced course aimed at students interested in the general field of Systems Neuroscience. The course will introduce new technological advances, as well as their application to examine the functional role of specific neural circuits in vivo. This course will employ a combination of  introductory lectures and extensive in-class discussions of primary literature. In addition, students will be introduced to the manuscript peer review process, by selecting manuscripts from a preprint server, and identifying their conceptual and technical strengths and weaknesses.
