show description

Biological clocks regulate many complex individual and interactive behaviors – from waking up in anticipation of the morning alarm to the seasonal migration of birds. Life on Earth evolved over billions of years in the presence of daily and seasonal fluctuations. Organisms have adapted time keeping systems that synchronize internal functions to predictable changes in the external environment. These rhythms help optimize timing of crucial behaviors, including sleep-wake cycles, foraging/metabolism, mating, hibernation, and mood. This engaging course explores the role of biological clocks in health and disease.

show description

This lecture course is designed to provide students with an understanding of the process of braindevelopment from embryogenesis through adulthood with emphasis on the role of the environment in directing this process. Initial lectures will focus on the origins of the central nervous system, including topics such as the organization of the brain, neurogenesis, cellular differentiation, migration and targeting of neurons, synapse formation and refinement of the nervous system. In the second half of the course, lectures will focus on the infant brain and the role of experiences during infancy in modifying brain function. Topics will also include recent advances in our understanding of the role of gene-environment interactions and epigenetic programming and shaping brain development. Finally, the adaptive vs. maladaptive outcomes of environmental modifications to the nervous system will be discussed. Throughout the course, students will be guided through examples of how changes in the developing nervous system lead to behavioral patterns both in infancy and adulthood.
