HMB360H1: Neurogenomics

Hours: 
24L/12T

Genetic basis of both the normal and abnormal development of the nervous system and its function. Topics include the regulation of neural gene expression, the role of epigenetics on neuron function, genome wide association studies and disorders of brain and behaviour, optogenetic and pharmacogenetic techniques to probe neural circuit function. Tutorials emphasize critical analysis of primary research.
