BIO (0105) 213 - Introduction to Neurobiology
Students will learn the fundamental concepts of cellular and molecular neurobiology. Students will be introduced to basic neuroanatomy and neurophysiology, including electrophysiological properties, development and the specialized communication that takes place between neural cells.
Free Note: Not for Biology major credit.
By the end of the course, students will be able to:
Identify the structure and cell biology of neurons and glial cells
Relate structure and function within the brain and spinal cord
Describe the synapse, basic neuronal circuitry and the role of neurotransmitters
Summarize basic principles of neurophysiology
Identify the parts of the visual and auditory systems
