Molecular Neurobiology University of Bordeaux
The main objective of this course is to provide an introduction tocellular and molecular neuroscience through the description of atheoretical and practical framework of certain molecular neurobiologyaspects.
Students should possess a Bachelor degree (180 ECTS) or equivalentdiploma in biology, biochemistry, biomedical sciences, medicalstudies, pharmacy, cognitivesciences or psychology.A proven interest and solid basic knowledge in the field ofNeuroscience must be provided by students with a Bachelor degree inanother subject (chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer science).Language prerequisite: fluency in English
- Lab report based on the practical session (0.25) - Practical work examination lasting 1h30 (0.25) - Final examination lasting 2h (0.5)
LECTURES: - The regulation of neuronal gene expression (6h) - Different classic intracellular signalling pathways in thebrain and the regulation of neurotransmitter transporters withmarkers of neurotransmission (8h)PRACTICALSESSION: - A practical approach integrating two main aspects with the analysisof the gene expression after neuronal cell differentiation and thestudy of the signalling pathways involved in this neuronal celldifferentiation.TUTORIALS: - Exercises directly linked to lectures and practical session.
- Lectures: 14h - Practical sessions: 14h - Tutorials: 6h Practical sessions are based mainly on cell lines culture and the analysis of gene expression (RNA extraction, cDNA synthesis and real time qPCR studies). These sessions take place in the premises of the Bordeaux Neurocampus Graduate Research Program and at the François Magendie Institute of Neuroscience. __ Tutorials are based on exercises prepared at home and presented in flipped classroom and small group presentation.
