BIOL 334 - Neurobiology of Disease

(4)
SP. How does an electrical signal propagate through your body in milliseconds? How do neurons and other cells in the central nervous system communicate to maintain homeostasis? How does our nervous system respond to disease and injury? In this course, our goal is to answer these questions by studying the structure and function of the nervous system on the cellular and molecular level from a biological perspective. We will explore the in depth mechanisms of homeostatic maintenance and disease in the central nervous system. The laboratory experience will focus on primary literature analysis of a particular neurobiology research laboratory, culminating in an interview with the primary investigator. The course will also include field trips to regional neuroscience research laboratories. Lectures and laboratories. Prerequisite: BIOL 161  or BIOL 141 .
