Neuronal Signaling Pathways
Advanced consideration of the molecular events between drug or hormone binding to receptors and the resulting responses. Emphasizes roles played by signal transduction pathways in regulation of synaptic plasticity, memory formation, neuronal apoptosis, and developmental neurobiology.
Each student will give two presentations during the quarter covering assigned papers. Emphasis on small group discussion of the papers.
