BIOL 333 - Introduction to Neurobiology


This entry level neuroscience course introduces students to the structure and function of neurons, the unique, information carrying cells of nervous systems. Students will explore how networks of neurons and their accompanying glia enable animals to perform amazing feats: sensory perception, feeling emotion, goal-directed movement, learning, memory, and consciousness, to name just a few. During our discussions, students will be introduced to the processes that guide neuronal function and the dysfunction that arises when cells are damaged by injury, mutations, disease, and old age.

Prerequisites: A grade of ‘C’ or higher in BIOL 107 - Cells, Molecules, and Genes  and BIOL 330 - Cell Biology  (or concurrent enrollment).
Credit(s): 3
