The first week of the course (March 17-21) will lay the foundations for a basic understanding of brain function. The goal for this week is to set a common baseline for students with different backgrounds, and to expose the students to how neuroscience is approached at different levels (from molecules and neurons to circuits and behaviour).
In the second week of the course (March 24-28) recent methodological advances with an application in neuroscience will be discussed, in the context of emergent questions in this field.
