Course Description

BMOL 20040 Developmental Neurobiology and Neuronal Stem Cells at UCD; This module forms part of the core curriculum for the BSc degree in Neuroscience. The course introduces the development of the nervous system at a molecular, cellular and systems level along with core underlying principles. We outline the anatomical growth and division of the brain and its driving forces such as gene expression and cell population expansion and consider questions such as how a growing axon finds its target and how neuronal subtypes originate from a single cell type. An overview of the special properties of neuronal stem cells and their potential is included and finally, the development and connectivity of large systems such as the cerebral cortex and hippocampus.
