Medical Neurobiology SU802



Medical Neurobiology explores the physiology and organization of the human nervous system. The course is designed for master students studying Biomedicine. It builds upon knowledge acquired in prior studies of cellular and molecular biology, general physiology, and human anatomy. The course will give students an understanding of the essential principles of neurological function, from cellular and molecular mechanisms of neural signaling and plasticity to the organization and function of sensory and motor systems. It also emphasizes the neurobiological foundation for understanding cognition, mental illness and disorders of human behavior.
