BI 335 Neurobiology


A study at the molecular, cellular, and systems level to examine the mechanisms through which the nervous system mediates behavior, this course emphasizes current and historical experimental evidence used to define the underlying principles of the nervous system. Discussions of nervous system disorders and treatments are integrated throughout the course. Topics include development, physiology, pharmacology and neuroanatomy. The laboratory sessions involve a range of models, fixed specimens, computer simulations; invertebrate, vertebrate and human experiments to examine nervous system structure and function.
