Neurobiology of Learning and Memory I
The aim of this course is to engage students in thinking about and discussing fundamental issues in research on neural mechanisms of learning and memory. Topics include the neural mechanisms of learning, memory, emotion, and addictive behavior. Students will be expected to read original reports including classical papers as well as recent advances. The course includes an experimental requirement in which students must design and conduct an experiment related to learning and memory mechanisms of the brain.
Students should have previously taken an undergraduate neuroscience course and at least one other basic neuroscience course at OIST; or have completed the equivalent by documented self-directed study.
