The cell biology of neurons including axonal transport and processing and targeting of proteins. Basic neuropharmacology of synaptic transmission with an emphasis on the molecular mechanisms of receptor action. Neuromodulation and second messenger systems. Cellular aspects of neural development with an emphasis on neuronal outgrowth, target recognition, and specific synapse formation.
