BIOL 6100 - From Neuron to Behavior


A detailed survey of important topics in the neurosciences. Some of the topics to be covered in this class are: basic mechanisms of neural signaling (neurophysiology, synaptic transmission, and molecular signaling; understanding of sensation/movement and in particular how it relates to neuroanatomy; neurodevelopment and how the mature brain can change (plasticity); and complex brain functions and neurological disease. Students prepare analyses and make a presentation of a paper in the original literature. Since there is overlap associated with the 4100 course, both courses may not be taken for credit.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisites: BIOL 1010, BIOL 2120 or permission of the instructor.

When Offered: Spring term annually.



Credit Hours: 4
