Fall 2016 Classes

BIOL 288:
Exp:Introduction to Research

    BIOL 375:
    Cellular Neurobiology

      This course will provide an introduction to the cellular & molecular biology of neurons. Students will learn how the intrinsic properties of neurons, together with synaptic transmission, lead to the
      formation of functional neural circuits for sensation, central integration, and patterned motor output. Restricted to majors and minors. Prerequisites: BIOL 300. Offered every fall
    Read more.

    BIOL 394:
    Neurobiology Techniques-Lab

      An introduction to the methods and experimental strategies used to explore the structure and function of the nervous system. Students will become familiar with physiological methods such as extracell
      ular and intracellular recording of neural activity, and the use of computers for data acquisition and analysis. Students will learn anatomical methods for identification of neuronal projections, staining to reveal neuronal form, and immunocytochemistry to identify neurotransmitters, receptors, and other molecular structures. Prerequisites: BIOL 300. Offered every fall
