BIO 301. Intro Neuroscience

This course will examine molecular control of neuronal function. Topics include the structure and function of neuronal excitability, chemical and contact-mediated neuronal communication, developing and regenerating nervous systems, sensation and perception, learning and memory formation, repair from neuronal damage, and the neuronal pathways of sensation and motor control. In the context of these subjects, we will review the neuronal alterations that cause some common brain diseases. Prerequisites: BIO 140  or BIO 214 , and CHEM 132  or by permission of instructor for PSYC majors with a neuroscience concentration. Credit may not be earned in both BIO 301 and BIO 385 /PSYC 385
