May 6, 2015

9:00 – 11:30 a.m.

综合楼307

Dr. Scott – Assistant Professor of Pharmacology, University of Virginia

Lecture on theNeuronal Circuitry Controlling Food-Seeking Behavior.  In this lecture, Dr. Scott will discuss: 1) the neuronal circuitry regulating the homeostatic and hedonic control of feeding and 2) behavioral tasks used to assess the drive to consume both drug and natural reward.  Several cutting-edge technologies will be introduced that are currently being applied to the investigation of feeding control circuitry. One participant will be asked to volunteer to present an assigned article; the article and background reading will be distributed before the class.

12:00-1:30 PM

Dr. Scott – Assistant Professor of Pharmacology, University of Virginia

Lecture on the Epigenetic Regulation of Behavior.  In this lecture, Dr. Scott will discuss: 1) Epigenetic modifications observed in the nervous system; 2) behavioral effects resulting from epigenetic changes in the genome 3) The lecture will be followed by a literature discussion (one participant will be asked to volunteer to present an assigned article; the article and background reading will be distributed before the class).

May 7, 2015

9:00 – 11:30 a.m.

综合楼205

Dr. Patel – Associate Professor of Anesthesiology, University of Virginia. Lecture on Membrane Potential and Action Potentials.  In this lecture, Dr. Patel will discuss: 1) passive membrane properties and how they are established; 2) What happens when an action potential is generated; 3) structures of ion channels. Several cutting-edge technologies will be introduced that are currently being used to study passive and active membrane properties of neurons. The lecture will be followed by a literature discussion (one participant will be asked to volunteer the presentation of an assigned article; the article and background reading will be distributed before the class).
