Neuromodulation of Neural Networks
Department of Biology and Center for Neuroscience
Biology 161 Principles of Human Physiology
Examines physiological systems of the human body. Lecture provides basic information regarding function of these systems from an integrative perspective. In laboratory, use hands-on approach and work in small groups to conduct experiments and/or carry out projects to illustrate the physiological concepts presented in lecture.
Biology 305W Human Physiology
The study of general physiological principles necessary for basic understanding of life processes. This lecture/lab course provides an in depth examination of the function of multiple systems in the body including nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory, urinary, skeletal muscle, reproductive and digestive systems. The laboratory component enables students to gain a hands-on understanding of the function of several systems.
Biology 400W Contemporary Issues in Biology: Neural Plasticity/Neuromodulation
Biology 452/552 Neuromodulation: Cells to Circuits
Examines neural plasticity due to neuromodulation of neurons, synapses, and circuits across invertebrate and vertebrate nervous systems, including the consequences of dysfunction in neuromodulatory systems. Emphasizes critical evaluation of current literature, and scientific communication.
Biology 491 Seminar in Biology: Neural Control of Movement
The examination of how the central nervous system controls movements, with a focus on rhythmic behaviors such as locomotion, respiration and chewing. Primary literature involving studies in a variety of organisms are used to examine how rhythmic movements are initiated, maintained and terminated.
Biology 710 Seminar in Biology: Neural Plasticity
Biology 710 Seminar in Biology: Endocannabinoid Signalling in the Nervous System
Biology 710 Seminar in Biology: Neural Feedback Loops
Neural Systems and Behavior (Marine Biology Laboratory, Woods Hole, MA)
The Neural Systems and Behavior (NS&B) Course is the premier discovery-driven training opportunity for the next generation of neuroethologists and systems neuroscientists. It is an 8 week intensive lecture and laboratory course held at the Marine Biological Lab (MBL) in Woods Hole, MA, every summer. Course facebook page
Learn about the neural basis of behavior and state of the art research approaches in a variety of organisms by watching lectures from the NS&B course! Or watch many other MBL course lectures and special presentations.
