PHYSIOL 435 — FUNDAMENTALS OF HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY
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/PSYCH/ZOOLOGY 524 — NEUROBIOLOGY II: AN INTRODUCTION TO THE BRAIN AND BEHAVIOR
An introduction to studies of the human nervous system covering neuroanatomy of the brain, neuronal coding, sensory and motor systems, biological rhythms, arousal, attention, physiological regulation, reward, aversion, learning and memory.
PHYSIOL 533 — MOLECULAR PHYSIOLOGY
This course will introduce funtional aspects of mammalian organ systems from a molecular perspective. Human diseases will receive a special emphasis, and diseases will be used to illustrate the connection between molecules and biological function. Recommended but not required: Biocore 323, biochem (e.g. BIOCHEM 507 508), cell biology (e.g. ZOOLOGY 570)
PHYSIOL/NTP/PHMCOL-M 610 — CELLULAR AND MOLECULAR NEUROSCIENCE
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
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
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/ANATOMY/NTP 625 — BRAIN CELL CULTURES AND IMAGING: A LAB COURSE
Hands-on laboratory training in neuronal cell culture, live and fixed neuron labeling and microscopy techniques to visualize neurons in culture, as well as image analysis methods. Enrollment limited to 12 students, authorized by cons inst
PHYSIOL/NTP 629 — MOLECULAR AND CELLULAR MECHANISMS OF MEMORY
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/ANATOMY/NTP 630 — NEURONAL MECHANISMS FOR SENSATION AND MEMORY IN CEREBRAL CORTEX
Current literature will be considered in lectures and discussions that provides insight into how the cerebral cortex processes sensory information to generate and store cogent representations of the external world. The course includes laboratory exercises and demonstrations.
PHYSIOL 675 — SELECTED TOPICS IN PHYSIOLOGY
Each topic taught once every two years: advanced cardiovascular physiology, advanced respiratory physiology, advanced endocrinology, membrane transport physiology and neurobiology.
PHYSIOL 699 — INDEPENDENT WORK
PHYSIOL/NTP 700 — PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR BIOMEDICAL GRADUATE STUDENTS
Provides graduate students with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in science. Topics which are covered include choosing a thesis advisor, grant writing, preparing a seminar presentation, etc.
PHYSIOL/KINES 773 — CARDIORESPIRATORY ADAPTIONS TO ENVIRONMENT AND EXERCISE
Examination of the effects of acute and chronic exercise and exposure to hypo- and hyperbaric environments on physiological responses; mechanisms underlying these responses.
