Credit value:15
Division:Division of Biosciences
Module organiser (provisional):Dr Daniel Bendor
Organiser's location:Bedford Way
Available for students in Year(s):
Module prerequisites:Core for MSc in Neuroscience, option for Dual Masters in Brain and Mind, MSc in Biomedical Sciences and MRes Biosciences 
Module outline:The module discusses systems and circuit analysis using a variety of techniques from optogenetics in Drosophila to human neuroimaging and computational modeling. The systems covered span from the generation and maintenance of circadian rhythms, reinforcement and learning in the striatum, to somatosensation and synaptic plasticity and memory.  
Module aims:To expose the students to the world-class research in systems neuroscience 
Module objectives:The students will become familiar with the cutting edge research into Systems and Circuit based analysis in Neuroscience. They will grasp and understand the knowledge of the research in this field as it progresses. They will learn about a variety of systems in the central nervous system spanning a range of model organisms from Drosophila and zebrafish to human neuroimaging work and computational models of memory.
