BIOL 424 - Neurobiology


Credit(s): 4
3 hours lecture, 3 hours lab
Prerequisite(s): ENGL 111 , BIOL 160 /BIOL 160A , BIOL 161 /BIOL 161A , CHEM 160 /CHEM 160A , CHEM 161 /CHEM 161A  and BIOL 275 .
Neurobiology provides a comprehensive introduction to the biology of the nervous system at the cellular and molecular level. The lectures focus on the biological mechanisms underlying neuronal function including action potential, synaptic transmission, axon growth and synapse formation. The inquiry‐based laboratories focus on techniques used to study the biology of the neuron including simulation of action potential and synaptic physiology, isolation and maintenance of neurons in culture, use of immunohistochemistry and fluorescent microscopy to examine neuronal structure and growth using digital imaging and use of image analysis software to quantitatively analyze neuronal components and behavior.
