Developmental Neurobiology

Professor Paradis

Discusses the molecular mechanisms used in the development of the nervous system in both invertebrate and vertebrate experimental systems. Topics include determination of neuronal cell fates, axon growth and guidance, plasticity during development, and mechanisms responsible for generation of connectivity in the nervous system. This course emphasizes reading of original scientific research papers and class discussion and oral presentations. Usually offered every second year.

Developmental Biology

Professor Paradis

" Developmental Biology is designed to introduce the principles of biological development and to emphasize the ongoing methods of inquiry in the field. We will follow developmental processes in a number of experimental systems and link this understanding to normal and abnormal human development. Classical methods of analysis will be studied to understand developmental events and concepts, and new breakthroughs will be discussed. We will also examine the genetic and molecular basis for developmental processes. My goal for the course is to provide an appreciation for the beauty and complexity of the biological processes that lead to the development of an adult organism from a single cell.

Neurogenetics

Prof Paradis and Prof Sengupta

Development and function of the nervous system and responses of excitable cells studied in neurological and behavioral mutants. Characterization and manipulation of genes, defined by these mutations and using molecular biological tools. Organisms: roundworms, fruit flies, mammals. Neurobiological areas: responses to sensory stimuli, biological rhythms, learning and memory, aging, and reproductive behavior.
