Organisms can regulate gene expression.
Professor James Eberwine describes the primary functions of RNA-binding proteins, which include regulating tRNAs, degrading RNAs, synthesizing RNAs, and regulating multigenic gene expression.
Because serotonin is critical to so many processes in the central nervous system, genes involved in its synthesis are interesting to neuroscientists.
George Beadle and Edward Tatum present their experiments with Neurospora bread mold.
François Jacob talks about Genes control the structure of proteins
Students work through a series of experiments that investigate the use of model organisms in the search for a better understanding of the genes that influence memory formation.

Jacques Monod and François Jacob work with how bacteria breaks large sugars into smaller pieces.
Cognitive information is encoded in patterns of nervous activity and decoded by molecular listening devices at the synapse. Professor Seth Grant explains how different patterns of neural firing are critical to cognition.
