Neurobiology of Drosophila

  December 13, 2005  

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Cold Spring Harbor, New York
June 30 - July 20, 2006

This laboratory/lecture course is intended for researchers at all levels from beginning graduate students through established primary investigators who want to use Drosophila as an experimental system for nervous system investigation. The three week course is divided into the study of development, physiology/function and behavior. Daily seminars introduce students to a variety of research topics and develop those topics by including recent experimental contributions and outstanding questions in the field. Guest lecturers bring original preparations for viewing and discussion and direct laboratory exercises and experiments in their area of interest. The course provides students with hands-on experience using a variety of experimental preparations that are used in the investigation of current neurobiological questions. The lectures and laboratories will focus on both the development of the nervous system and its role in controlling larval and adult behaviors. In addition to an exposure to the molecular genetic approaches available in Drosophila, students will learn a variety of techniques including: embryo in situ hybridization, labelling of identified neurons, electrophysiological recording from nerves and muscles, and the analysis of larval and adult behavior. Collectively, the course will provide a comprehensive and practical introduction to modern experimental methods for studying the Drosophila nervous system.
