BI 342 - Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience


Credits: 3
Historic examination of axon guidance research using primary sources. Students will review and present seminal research articles that transitioned the field of axon guidance from a small research question to a major field in neurobiology. Students will study mechanisms of axon guidance, model systems, relevant gene families, and cellular and molecular approaches. Substantial emphasis will be placed on strengths and weakness of methodologies currently in use in the field. Students will develop scientific writing and oral presentation skills through multiple graded assignments.
Prerequisites: BI 108   or  , and one 200-level biology course except BI 299 A-C ; for neuroscience students:  , BI 107 , and  ,  , or  .
