PDBEB Course - Synapses, Neuronal Circuits and Behavior
Banner Synapses

The aim of this course is to provide an integrated view into the functioning of neuronal synapses and circuits, and the methodologies used to probe how neural networks assemble and communicate with one another. A second aim is to address questions related to how neuronal computations give rise to behavioral outputs and perceptions. Teaching will be based on lectures that focus on 1) synapse assembly, function and plasticity; 2) particular circuits or brain region and the underlying behavioral programs; and 3) disorders associated with synaptic dysfunction and circuits malfunction. The students will gain knowledge on how information in coded in the brain and how it is propagated, and will be introduced to the state of the art methodologies applied in the field of neuroimaging, neurophysiology and behavioral analysis. This will include discussion and exploration of practical examples on the application of techniques such as: in vivo recordings with multi-electrode arrays, local field potential analyses, brain imaging, optogenetics, genetic engineering or multi-photon microscopy.
