NEU 408/MOL 408 Cellular and Systems Neuroscience
A survey of fundamental principles in neurobiology at the biophysical, cellular, and system levels. Lectures will address the basis of the action potential, synaptic transmission, sensory physiology and motor control, development of the central nervous system, synaptic plasticity, and disease states. A central theme will be the understanding of systems phenomena in terms of cellular mechanisms.
Prerequisites: MOL 214 or MOL 215, PSY 258 and MAT 103, or instructor's permission. A basic familiarity with simple electrical circuits (as presented in PHY104 or ELE203) is expected.
