BIOL 376: Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience

Term: Spring

Credits: 4

Degree Requirements:

An exploration of the unique cell biology and physiology of neurons.  Students will learn how neurons grow and maintain highly specialized structures such as dendrites and axons, and then use them to send, receive, and process information.  Course topics will include the neuronal cytoskeleton, axonal transport, axonal pathfinding and synaptogenesis, action potential generation and propagation, synaptic transmission, dendritic integration, and synaptic plasticity.

Prerequisites: Biology I Biology I Lab Biology II Biology II Lab,
