Current Research Literature in Neurobiology

Weekly journal club in neurobiology. Students read and discuss original research articles in neurobiology, centered around a specific topic each quarter. Prerequisite: BIOL 220. Credit/no-credit only.

Class description

In this quarter’s journal club, we will explore the development of neural circuits and ways they could be repaired when damaged by disease or injury. I’ve picked a wide range of great recent papers, each covering a different aspect of our overall topic.

The purpose of the class is to practice your critical thinking and scientific communication skills. Every student will present one paper, and write a review of another paper. There will be short questions associated with each week’s paper.
