Laboratory in Cellular and Behavioral Neurobiology|
NS&B 250, NS&B 555|
The goals of the course are to introduce students to a number of contemporary laboratory techniques in neuroscience and behavior. The laboratory introduces students to experimental method and techniques including neuroanatomy, immunohistochemistry, primary neuronal and astrocyte cell culture methods, analyses of electrical activity in the brain, and behavioral analyses of learning, memory, social behavior, and social dominance in inbred strains of mice.
Students will learn to analyze experimental data and write a series of laboratory reports on the experiments done during class. Additionally, students will write a term paper related to one of the experimental approaches.
