Neurophysiology: How the Brain Thinks
Learn the molecular, cellular, and circuitry mechanisms that underlie the functioning of the mammalian nervous system, especially the human brain.
What you can learn.
- Explore the current neurophysiological understanding of human emotions, speech, and language processing
- Recognize the relationship between the human brain, sleep, learning, and memory
- Evaluate new findings in related to the human brain and science
About this course:This course explores the molecular, cellular, and circuitry mechanisms that underlie the function of the mammalian nervous system, with special emphasis on the human brain. Topics include analysis of electrical properties of neurons, chemical communication between neurons, cellular processes responsible for synaptic transmission as well as short- and long-term plasticity, and the functional organization of the central nervous system.
