Organization and function of nervous systems emphasizing cellular and molecular mechanisms. Topics include cell biology of neurons, neuron growth, motor proteins and the cytoskeleton, physiology of excitable membranes and biological circuits. Laboratory emphasizes experimental methods and includes tissue culture and microscopy. Three hours lecture, three hours laboratory per week.
