This course will survey integrative and cellular aspects of neuroscience with a focus on the neural mechanisms of learning and memory. It will include both a lecture and laboratory component. There are three modules, each to be taught by different faculty. The modules will each integrate knowledge of methodology, basic neuroscience, and the application of these to learning and memory. The modules are clinical neuropathology and neuroimaging, animal models of learning and memory, and synaptic and cellular mechanisms of learning and memory. The intent of each module is to present an integrative picture of the organization and function of learning and memory systems in both simple and complex nervous systems. Specific topics will include nonassociative learning (habituation and sensitization) in invertebrates, associative conditioning of motor and emotional responses in vertebrates, genetics of learning and memory, synaptic plasticity and learning, molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in learning and memory, quantitative and computation models of synaptic plasticity and learning, cognitive neuroimaging of human learning and memory, and clinical neuropathology of learning and memory in humans. The topics of the course will span many levels of biological organization from behavior to genomic regulation.
