NEU 312 - Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience

4.00 credits.
Cellular and Molecular Neuroscience is an exploration into the physiological processes that underlie typical neuronal functions, focusing primarily on individual neurons. This course spans across 6 subdomains of cellular and molecular neuroscience including: cell biology, neurodevelopment, electrical properties, neurotransmitter release, receptor signaling, and synaptic plasticity. Students will complete a semester-long experimental proposal centered around a neurological disorder or disease, with oral presentation and writing elements, integrating concepts across these subdomains.  *Prerequisite(s): BIO 212  or permission of instructor. Spring semester, when offered.
