Basic Neuroscience

This is a jointly sponsored Ruth L. Kirschstein Institutional pre-doctoral training program grant from over 40 neuroscientists across 14 academic departments at UC Davis. The goal of the program is to provide a broad training in the fundamental principles of neuroscience for entering students that will lay solid foundations for their specialized research in advanced years and provide them with the broad perspective essential for their establishing successful independent research programs in neuroscience in their future careers. Trainees participate in a teaching program especially designed to give exposure to as broad a range of modern neuroscience sub disciplines and technologies as possible including cellular and molecular neuroscience, neuroanatomy and neurophysiology, neurogenetics, systems neuroscience, cognitive neuroscience, computational neuroscience and modeling, the neurobiology of disease, and central neural mechanisms of behavior.
