Courses

Neuroscience: cellular and circuit mechanisms

This course focuses on the cellular mechanisms of mammalian brain function. We will describe how neurons communicate through synaptic transmission in order to process sensory information ultimately leading to motor behavior.

Scientific project design in integrative neurosciences

This course will provide a forum in which students engage themselves in learning how to design a scientific project that bridges scales and allows following the causal chain from one scale to the next.

State of the Art Topics in Neuroscience XI

(Coursebook not yet approved by the section)

Neural circuits for reward and aversion learning

Animals must learn from past experiences, to adapt their behavior to an ever-changing environment. Students will learn about the neuronal circuit mechanisms of reward-based learning, and of aversively-mediated learning, by studying the current scientific literature on these topics.
