Research seminar: Molecular and cellular mechanisms of neuronal differentiation (Stud IP 6.01.56101j)
The seminar provides in-depth knowledge of neuronal differentiation processes during development and regeneration processes in the adult CNS. The seminar includes a lecture and a literature seminar. In addition, students who are writing a thesis in the Department of Anatomy are given the opportunity to present and discuss their experimental results.
In the lecture part, the basics of neurobiology and neuronal development are taught. In addition, methods of experimental molecular and cellular neurobiology are taught.
In the literature seminar, current scientific literature is discussed. New publications are presented in short lectures by the lecturers as well as the students.
The course is offered as an accompaniment to the LFC or a (medical) doctoral thesis, as well as bachelor's and master's theses, in order to gain in-depth knowledge in neurobiology and neuronal development. The research seminar can also be credited as an accompanying seminar to the practical module and bachelor's degree module, for example in the biology degree programme.
The research seminar is basically aimed at all students who have a special interest in neurobiology, especially in relation to developmental processes. Special prior knowledge is not required for participation.
