NEU 300 — Neural Development
This course will cover the major concepts of developmental neurobiology. Recent advances in the understanding of the molecular and cellular events underlying neural induction, neural tube formation, cell differentiation, proliferation, migration, axon guidance, synapse formation, neurotrophic factors, and neural death will be discussed. The course will also focus on activity-dependent plasticity and its role in generating and maintaining synaptic input within the nervous system. Pathologies arising from failures of these processes will also be examined.
Prerequisites: A grade of C or better in NEU 100 and NEU 200.
