Primary Instructor:

This course is intended for advanced undergraduate students and for graduate students interested in gaining a detailed understanding of molecular mechanisms underlying synaptic function and development. Throughout the course, the focus will be on understanding the experimental approaches that produced current knowledge. In many weeks students will be assigned recent research papers as their primary reading material. The first half of the course will focus on neurotransmitter receptors at both presynaptic and postsynaptic locations. The second half of the course will focus on mechanisms for packaging and releasing neurotransmitter from the presynaptic terminal, and on the development of synapses.
