BIOL 5595: Cell and Molecular Neuroscience
Lecture - 4 credits
- Combines molecular biology, cell biology, pharmacology, and genetics to address the fundamental molecular properties of neurons and neuronal networks.
- At its core, the principles that govern the communication between cells of the nervous system are determined by their molecular components.
- The molecular landscape defines the individual properties of a neuron and the function of neuronal networks as a whole.
- Focuses on neuronal signaling through the function of ion channels and receptors, supramolecular mechanisms like synaptic transmission and axonal transport, and the molecular mechanisms that underlie biological networks and neural coding of information.
- Uses the fundamental understanding of molecular networks as a framework to explore the mechanisms that underlie neurological diseases and disorders.
- Discusses current treatments and therapies that rely on modulating neuronal signaling through molecular interactions.
