NIH-Supported Courses at the Marine Biology Laboratory
- Explores important questions and challenges in auditory and vestibular research, and provides laboratory instruction in state-of-the
art methods for studying the inner ear.
- Introduces students to the computational and mathematical techniques used to study brain function, from the level of single
ion channels to integrated neural circuits.
- Covers topics in systems-level neuroscience, including the cellular basis of pattern generators, vocal learning and plasticity,
and sensory-motor integration.
- A laboratory-oriented course in cellular and molecular neurobiology divided into three sections: Electrophysiology, Imaging,
and Molecular Neurobiology.
- Explores the use of digital technology for analyzing and integrating large volumes of mutlichannel data in neuroscience research.
- Introduces students to topics and techniques in neuroscience research, ethical issues, and survival skills such as grant writing
and public speaking. Students may spend another four weeks in a research lab at MBL.
- Targeted to groups underrepresented in neuroscience research.
- Covers the genetic, anatomical and behavioral tools available for studying nervous system development in the zebrafish.
