    BIOL 0420

    How do genes contribute to the neural basis of behavior? How can we use what we know about genetics to dissect how neurons and neural circuits work? Neurogenetics attempts to answer these questions. In this course we will learn how to study neurobiology as a geneticist. By analyzing the primary literature, we will study which genes are critically important for certain behaviors, and we will learn how we can exploit genetics to elucidate how neurons and nervous systems work.
