PHYSIOL 335 — PHYSIOLOGY

5 credits.

Lectures, recitations, demonstrations, and labs. Not open to Fr

PHYSIOL 435 — FUNDAMENTALS OF HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY

5 credits.

An advanced human physiology course that explores the major organ systems. The main learning objective is an understanding of the mechanisms through which homeostasis is integrated and maintained. The class includes weekly: three lectures, one discussion, and one inquiry-based laboratory period. Zoo 102, 151, 152, or Biocore 303/383 required. CHEM 103, 104, 109, or 115 required. PHYSICS 103, 104, 201, 202, 207, or 208 required.

PHYSIOL/​NTP/​PHMCOL-M  610 — CELLULAR AND MOLECULAR NEUROSCIENCE

4 credits.

Study of original papers leading to an understanding of the molecular basis of electrical activity in neurons. Topics include voltage-sensitive currents, molecular biology of neuronal receptorrs, synaptic transmission and sensory transduction. Lectures supplemented with experimental demonstrations and discussion sessions.

PHYSIOL/​ANATOMY/​NTP/​PHMCOL-M/​PSYCH  611 — SYSTEMS NEUROSCIENCE

4 credits.

Introduction to the anatomy and physiology of the mammalian nervous system. Lectures will cover the neuroanatomy of the major subdivisions of the human brain, the major sensory and motor systems, and higher order functions. Lab/discussion sections will emphasize readings from the primary literature and hands-on dissections.

PHYSIOL/​NEURODPT/​NTP/​ZOOLOGY  616 — LAB COURSE IN NEUROBIOLOGY AND BEHAVIOR

4 credits.

Students will do three independent experimental modules exploring neurophysiology and behavior, each taking 4-5 weeks. Students will work in groups of 2 or 3 and will learn techniques and then develop their own short investigations into each of three separate areas of neurobiology. There will be continual interaction between students and faculty.

PHYSIOL/​NTP  629 — MOLECULAR AND CELLULAR MECHANISMS OF MEMORY

3 credits.

Course will focus on the cell signaling and the resulting structural changes that occur at neuronal synapses during memory formation. The aim is to understand how the synaptic changes underlying memory occur.

PHYSIOL 675 — SELECTED TOPICS IN PHYSIOLOGY

1-3 credits.

Each topic taught once every two years: advanced cardiovascular physiology, advanced respiratory physiology, advanced endocrinology, membrane transport physiology and neurobiology.

PHYSIOL 699 — INDEPENDENT WORK

1-4 credits.

PHYSIOL/​KINES  773 — CARDIORESPIRATORY ADAPTIONS TO ENVIRONMENT AND EXERCISE

3 credits.

Examination of the effects of acute and chronic exercise and exposure to hypo- and hyperbaric environments on physiological responses; mechanisms underlying these responses.

PHYSIOL 799 — INDEPENDENT READING

1-4 credits.

PHYSIOL 901 — SEMINAR

1 credit.

PHYSIOL 990 — RESEARCH

1-9 credits.
