Journal Club


The Anatomy and Neurobiology Journal Club (A & N JC) is a student-run departmental course (Topics in Neuroscience, course code 90220) designed to allow graduate students the opportunity to read, interpret and present literature critically to fellow peers, post-docs and faculty. The class is a mandatory requirement for all graduate students in the department of Anatomy and Neurobiology.

Course Objectives

The objectives of the course are multi-faceted and include opportunities:

  • To engage graduate students in a meaningful discussion.
  • To provide graduate students with an environment conducive to learning about an eclectic array of research studies being performed within the department.
  • To encourage student interactions with faculty.
  • To promote intra-departmental communication amongst graduate students which would not only provide them with a social network, but also assist them in exploring new techniques and experimental procedures.
  • To provide the more novice students with role-models within their own community, such as the more experienced students as well as participating post-doctoral fellows.

Course Details

The Journal Club is scheduled to meet every other Wednesday during the academic year, from 9:00 to 11:00 AM in Gillespie, First Floor Conference room or in Hewitt Hall. For more information, visit the Syllabus and Calendar.
