The goal of this class is to explore in depth a current topic in neuroscience. Potential topics include addiction, schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease, memory reconsolidation, and more. Note: A semester's course will cover one topic in depth and not cover multiple topics. In addition, students will also read primary literature (research articles), lead a 10 minute discussion on an article, write a review on a related topic, and present slides with their view. These exercises are intended to promote scientific analysis and the development of public speaking and writing skills.
