Neurobiology of Learning and Memory II
Learn fundamental neural mechanisms of learning and memory, with a focus on memory. Through lectures and journal club presentations, discover connections between synaptic plasticity and memory, and the important role of the hippocampus in different types of memory. Compare and contrast synaptic and systems consolidation mechanisms of memory, and their effects and consequences. Apply this knowledge in preparing a mock grant proposal for a significant question in memory research.
Students interested in memory and should have basic knowledge of neuroscience.
