Students work in small teams (group size ~3). They acquire in-depth knowledge in experimental methods and selected research topics within the field of Neurobiology. They learn to design, perform and analyze scientific experiments. They learn to present, interpret, and discuss their experimental data in written and oral form (protocol, poster, talk). Topics: anatomical, physiological, and molecular principles in the mammalian brain: 1. Analysis of basic neuronal functions via single-cell electrophysiology (patch-clamp recordings) in acute brain slices. 2. Analysis of proteins by immuno-histochemistry and/or proteomics. 3. Data analysis and graphing with state-of-the art software. Contact time of this course will be five weeks (~200 h) in the laboratory. In addition, there will be a contact time of 10 h for the semi-nar. In total, home assignments will comprise another ~160 h.
