MB335 - Molecular Neurobiology

This class will extend students’ understanding of genetics and molecular/cellular biology to the nervous system. Using case studies of sensory systems and neurological disorders, we will explore topics like ion channels and electrical signaling, synaptic transfer, and axonal transport. This class will rely on discussion and presentation of the primary literature, and culminate in a formal debate of the theories of olfaction, as well as a final project in which students design experiments to test their own hypotheses. Lecture/Discussion.

Prerequisite: Molecular Biology 231.
