Welcome - Cellular Neuroscience NESC 2570   Cellular Neuroscience
This course explores the brain at the neuronal level. Material covered includes: the ionic basis of resting potentials; the electrical activity of neurons; synaptic transmission and plasticity; synthesis and action of synaptic transmitters; and drug actions. Cellular phenomena relevant to healthy and neurologically-dysfunctional systems are also discussed.
