PSYCH 733 - Seminar in Neuroscience
Section: 001 Advanced Neural Circuits
Term: WN 2018
Subject: Psychology (PSYCH)
Department: LSA Psychology
With permission of instructor.
May be repeated for a maximum of 12 credit(s). May be elected more than once in the same term.
Primary Instructor:

Students in this class will learn how to think about large groups of distinct neurons working together in a circuit to encode behaviorally relevant information. Specific topics include: hippocampal, neocortical and striatal circuits, and how they contribute to spatial memory, attention/perception and movement/reward processing. Graduate students enrolled in Advanced Neural Circuits will also be expected to know all the material covered in the parallel Introduction to Neural Circuits course to ensure everyone has the appropriate background knowledge. The last third of the course will focus on using Matlab for the analysis of large neural circuit datasets.

Course Requirements:

The course grade will be based on in-class contributions, pre-class write-ups, one presentation, a term paper and a comprehensive final data analysis project.

Intended Audience:

Advanced Neural Circuits is designed for graduate students in Neuroscience, Biopsychology, Biomedical Engineering, Biophysics and other disciplines.

Class Format:

Class Meeting Time: in addition to attending the Psych 330 (Intro to Neural Circuits) lectures, there will be one additional hour of class time devoted to primary literature and data analysis discussions. The timing of this additional one hour of class time will be decided at the start of the semester to suit the schedule of all enrolled graduate students.
