This course aims to provide a solid foundation in the field of neuroscience at cellular and organismal levels, and the concepts of integrative neurobiology. This is targeted for graduate students who are interested in professional fields in animal and human neurophysiology, research, and medicine or veterinary sciences. Students are encouraged to build broad and strong academic foundations.
• Neuroanatomy: structure and function of nervous system
• Cellular neurophysiology: synapses, and circuits
• Systems neuroscience: integration of molecular mechanisms, anatomical circuits, and behavioural analysis to understand function of neural systems
• Fundamental topics in biological neuroscience:
› Learning and memory
› Pain and pleasure
› Satiety and obesity
