9.18 Developmental Neurobiology
Considers molecular control of neural specification, formation of neuronal connections, construction of neural systems, and the contributions of experience to shaping brain structure and function. Topics include: neural induction and pattern formation, cell lineage and fate determination, neuronal migration, axon guidance, synapse formation and stabilization, activity-dependent development and critical periods, development of behavior. Students taking graduate version complete additional readings that will be addressed in their mid-term and final exams.
Lecture occurs 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 46-3015.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
