BIO 3750. Neurobiology (4 credits)


This course covers the fundamentals of neurobiology, the cellular basis of nervous system function, the characteristics and functions of neurons, and the various ways signals are relayed within the nervous system. We examine how neurons receive, integrate and transmit information and how groups of neurons produce both simple and complex behaviors. The cellular and molecular basis of sensory and motor systems, plasticity, development and learning will be analyzed, with emphasis on the relationship of cellular and physiological processes to human behavior. The laboratory/discussion section will include dissection of preserved brains, basic laboratory techniques in neuroscience, and analysis and discussion of relevant portions of the recent scientific literature. Lecture and Laboratory. PREREQ: BIO 1000 , BIO 1020 .
