The course will introduce students to the fundamental neural processes underlying behavior. It will begin with a detailed examination of the properties of individual neurons and then move on to demonstrate how neurons can communicate together to produce complex behaviors. Some of the basic concepts that will be covered will include: the molecular basis of electrical and chemical communication, sensory transduction and processing, neuropharmacology, the neural basis of reflexes and simple behavior, development of the nervous system and the influence of external stimuli on neural processing. Prereq: BIOL 411 and BIOL 412 and CHEM 403 and CHEM 404.
