Adaptation to a changing environment is essential for the survival of almost all living beings. After a brief overview of the different forms of learning and memory we will discuss mainly the neurobiological basis of these processes. We will focus our attention on the level of neurones and neural circuits. The course will be based on a sample of primary literature, both classic and current, covering experimental and theoretical research. Journal articles will be introduced, presented and discussed by students. Topics will be assigned during the pre-meeting. This course is intended for students from all faculties with basic knowledge of neurobiology.

Reading: A mixture of English textbook chapters and journal articles that will be announced during the pre-meeting and the course.
