PHSL 847 Developmental Neurobiology
Development of the nervous system from early induction to the development of learning and memory. Topics include: Induction; Cellular Differentiation; Axon Growth and Guidance; Target Selection; Cell Survival and Growth; Synapse Formation; Synapse Elimination; and Development of Behavior. (Same as ANAT 847, NURO 847, and NEUS 847.) Prerequisite: Advanced Neuroscience (ANAT 846; NURO 846; PHSL 846) or consent of instructor.
The Ph.D. in Molecular and Integrative Physiology prepares the student for a career in independent research in the broad are of Physiology. The Ph.D. is most often followed by one or more years of postdoctoral training in a specific area of research. Acquisition of a Ph.D. in Molecular and Integrative Physiology allows the individual to pursue positions in industry or government and following postdoctoral experience opportunities are available at the college or university level.
