BIOL 27000 - Introduction to Neuroscience

This is a one-term introductory lecture course. The main focus is to provide an understanding of the principles underlying the function of the nervous system while comprehending certain experimental procedures that have led to this knowledge. In the first part of the course, the cellular and molecular mechanisms that regulate the activity of individual neurons will be discussed. Then, based on model systems, we will examine how neurons are assembled in networks to give rise to sensation and function. Finally, topics related to the development, maintenance, and plasticity of these networks will be covered.  Accepted for credit toward the Biology Major.
