NROC69H3 Synaptic Organization and Physiology of the Brain

The course will provide an in-depth examination of neural circuits, synaptic connectivity and cellular mechanisms of synaptic function. Similarities and differences in circuit organization and intrinsic physiology of structures such as the thalamus, hippocampus, basal ganglia and neocortex will also be covered. The goal is to engender a deep and current understanding of cellular mechanisms of information processing in the CNS.
