[3 Credits]
This course will focus on recent advances in developmental neuroscience. Two hour formal lectures and a one hour seminar component per week will cover neural induction, neurogenesis, cell-ECM interactions, neural crest cell migration, neurotrophins, signal transduction, apoptosis axon guidance, axon-target interactions, synaptogenesis and activity-dependent refinement of neural connections. Students will be required to critically evaluate and present current literature on these subjects and write short essays.
