BIOL 280 - Neural Imaging


Credits: 4
Planned Offering: Spring 2014 and alternate years

Prerequisite: BIOL 111, 113, 220 or instructor consent. This course examines how the architecture of specific types of neurons affect the neuron’s ability to receive, process, and transmit synaptic information. In particular, the course examines how some of the important molecular growth and differentiation cues (e.g., growth factors) can transmit signals important for axon growth and survival of developing and mature neurons. Topics may include neurogenesis, axonal pathfinding, synaptogenesis, and regeneration. Students will conduct original research in the laboratory and acquire skills with various imaging techniques and analytical tools. Watson.
