This course will cover development of brain structure and function; how and why brain dysfunction arises and the strategies currently under investigation to prevent damage and restore function in the central nervous system. These topics will be covered at the genetic, epigenetic, molecular and cellular levels and will provide sufficient information for students to integrate these into a coherent understanding of nervous system development and disease.
