The course will present studies investigating the molecular and cellular analysis of the development of the nervous system. Topics covered will include how neurons are generated, how the brain is patterned, how neurons differentiate, how neurons find their synaptic targets and make their synaptic connections and what regulates regeneration within the nervous system. In some years the molecular analysis of neural circuits underlying complex behaviors will also be covered. There will be an emphasis on investigations utilizing genetically amenable animals.
