Laboratory in Cellular and Behavioral Neuroscience
BIOL 250
Fall 2013
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: NS&B 250, BIOL 555, NS&B 555

The goals of the course are to introduce cellular, molecular, and behavioral laboratory techniques within a framework of solving research problems. Students will be given the opportunity to design experiments through an independent research project. Both quantitative and qualitative approaches will be used to analyze experimental data obtained by the student so that the student will not only gain experience in specific laboratory techniques, but will also gain a feel for the research process itself by active participation in research. In addition to techniques practiced in the course, additional techniques employed in research will be presented through lecture. Techniques will include studies of transgenic mouse nervous system, primary neuronal cell culture, immunohistochemistry, and behavioral analyses of learning, memory, social behavior, and social dominance.
