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.
Priority will be given to students enrolled in the Specialist/Specialist Co-op program in Neuroscience Systems/Behavioural and Cellular/Molecular streams.
Students enrolled in the Specialist/Specialist Co-op program in Neuroscience Cognitive Neuroscience stream or the Major program in Neuroscience will be admitted as space permits.
