ANAT 264 - SYNAPTIC ORGANIZATION OF THE BRAIN

[3 Credits]
This course will provide an in-depth examination of the physiologic and anatomic organization of the major structures of the brain and spinal cord. The course will consist of two 2-hour sessions per week, each week being devoted to a different CNS structure and taught by a different instructor with expertise in the field. The organization of each CNS structure, including the cellular physiology, major synaptic inputs, intrinsic synaptic organization, and primary outputs of the structure will be emphasized in the lectures. As part of their grade, students are required to give oral presentations summarizing recent primary research articles.
