BIO 301. Introductory Neuroscience

This course will examine molecular control of neuronal function. Topics include the structure and function of neuronal excitability, chemical and contactmediated 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. Prerequisite:  BIO 140  or BIO 214, and CHEM 132 , or by permission of instructor for PSYC majors.
