Spring 2019 not offered
NS&B 245, BIOL 599|
This course will deal with basic aspects of neuronal physiology, including the function of excitable membranes and the transfer of information between cells (e.g., synaptic physiology, neurochemistry, membrane receptors). In connection with each of these topics, consideration will be given to short- and long-term modification of neuronal function. Toward the end of the course, we will examine the neurophysiology of epileptic seizures as well as the neurophysiology of motor systems.
