Primary Instructor:

This course will introduce you to key concepts in neurobiology. The first half of the course will focus on the cellular and molecular basis of electrical and synaptic signaling, and on how changes in synaptic signaling are related to learning and memory. The second half of the course will focus on sensory neurobiology. This section of the course will deal with how physical and chemical signals are transduced into electrical signals, and how the synaptic networks of the brain extract useful information from these signals to give rise to conscious perceptions of the outside world. The textbook does an excellent job of explaining current concepts. A major focus of the lectures and discussion sections will be to help you understand the experiments that led to the development of our current views.

This course is particularly appropriate for sophomores considering majoring in one of the biological sciences, as it is a required part of the Neuroscience concentration, and a popular elective in the Biology and Cell and Molecular Biology concentrations.
