D.L. Deitcher.

Focuses on how different molecular and genetic approaches have led to major advances in neuroscience. Lectures, student presentations, and discussions examine original research articles. Topics include: ligand-gated channels, potassium channels, seven membrane spanning receptors, olfaction, pain and cold receptors, neurotransmitter release, neural networks, epilepsy, optogenetics, and circadian rhythms.

Outcome 1: Demonstrate mastery of reading primary scientific literature in molecular neuroscience.

Outcome 2: Demonstrate ability to present scientific information from primary literature to a broad audience by oral presentation.

Outcome 3: Demonstrate ability to apply basic scientific principles to formulate hypotheses that explain raw scientific data.

Outcome 4: Develop a clear understanding of the utility of model genetic organisms in the field of neuroscience.
