BIO 8303 Techniques of Light Microscopy
Course coordinator
Advanced laboratory and lecture course on the principles and techniques of light microscopy.

BIO 8361 Advanced Animal Physiology
Organized by Katie Gilmour
Recent advances in animal physiology, emphasizing comparative, evolutionary and environmental approaches.

CMM 4360 The dynamical brain: experimental and computational approaches to neural networks
Organized by Len Maler
An advanced course that covers brain function at multiple spatial and temporal scales ranging from the single neuron and the brief millisecond actions of its ion channels to spatially extended neural networks linked by synaptic interactions and acting over seconds to days. Connections from neural network activity to behaviourally evident outcomes, e.g. perception, motor control and memory storage, will be discussed. Focus will be on the normal functioning of the nervous system with some exploration of how disruptions of neural function can lead to neurological and psychiatric diseases. Modern neuroscience methods, including mathematical approaches to quantifying neuronal activity, will be emphasized.

CMM 5304 Introduction to Developmental Biology
