NEU 366S NEU 366S. Neuromolecular Genetics and Disease Laboratory. 3 Hours.
Explores techniques used to study the molecular genetic basis for nervous system function and disease with a powerful invertebrate model system. Subjects will range from studying the conserved molecular basis for our senses and male/female-specific behaviors, to exploring how mutations of conserved neural genes cause neurological disorders, such as Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease. Six laboratory hours a week for one semester Prerequisite: Neuroscience 335 with a grade of at least C-.
