The goal of this course is to introduce modern methods of neurobiology to the students. Students will work independently or in small teams. Students will scientific proposal, perform and analyze scientific experiments and presentation of results in oral and written form (presentation and proposal). The course addresses modern questions of Drosophila neurobiology. Topics include: 1. Analysis of synapse formation and stability; 2. Analysis of neuronal circuits 3. Analysis of animal behavior including learning and memory; Methods include: Drosophila genetics (including opto- and thermogenetic methods), molecular and cell biology of the neuron, immuno-histochemical analysis, high-resolution confocal microscopy, genetic screens
