BIOL 121. Neural Systems and Behavior.

This seminar will examine the genetic, molecular, and functional requirements of identified brain systems, neural circuits, and individual neurons in the regulation of behavior.  Discussion of primary literature will include the neural systems and behaviors of invertebrate and vertebrate model organisms, including Drosophila, mice, and humans.  Research projects will utilize Drosophila as a model system to investigate the genes, neurons, and circuits involved in courtship, motor, and pain-sensing behaviors.  
Prerequisite: BIOL 022, or BIOL 029, or permission of instructor.
Natural sciences and engineering practicum.
2 credits.
