PSYCH 808 - Special Seminar
Section: 007 Neural Mechanisms of Memory
Term: WN 2018
Subject: Psychology (PSYCH)
Department: LSA Psychology
Credits:
3
Advisory Prerequisites:
Graduate standing and permission of instructor.
Repeatability:
May be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

In this seminar course we will review findings and theories of the neural processes that underlie the formation of memories. We will draw motivation from human phenomena, and review mechanistic studies at the neuronal circuit level in rodents. We will discuss the role of the hippocampus and cortex in memory formation, storage and retrieval, and examine how their structure, neurophysiological activity patterns and communication with other brain regions are believed to support this function. The course will also include discussions of modern methods in neurophysiological research, including extracellular electrophysiology, two-photon imaging and prevalent analytical methods.

Course Requirements:

The course will require reading 2-3 journal articles per week and presenting papers in class a few times during the semester. The main assessments will be class participation, class presentations, and a final paper.

Intended Audience:

This course is intended for psychology graduate students or undergrads who have previously taken a 400-level Biopsychology or Neuroscience course, or with permission of instructor.
