− Students will hear introductory lectures, read selected textbook chapters at an advanced level (e.g. Bear/Connors Paradiso: Neuroscience, Exploring the Brain; chapter “Molecular Mechanisms of Learning and Memory”) and reviews as well as original research papers focussing on mechanisms of neural plasticity. Each day, the literature will be discussed amongst the group and with the lecturer.
