GS14 1051 Seminar in Neurobiology of Learning and Memory

  • Course Director(s): John Byrne
  • Semester: All Semesters
  • Frequency: Annually
  • Credit Hours: 1
  • Grading System: Pass/Fail
  • Prerequisites: None


This course has two major objectives. The first is to familiarize students with current research in learning and memory with particular emphasis on the cellular and molecular mechanisms. The second goal is to teach students how to give outstanding research seminars. Weekly 90 minute meetings involve alternate faculty and student presentations on current problems in the neurobiology of learning and memory. Faculty and student presentations cover recent articles from leading journals on the same topic. Students are instructed in the preparation of PowerPoint presentations, seminar organization, and techniques of oral presentation and are given feedback by faculty and fellow student following their presentations. Students can register for this course multiple times during their graduate career.
