397N--Neurobiology and Physiology Lab

This project-based laboratory course will expose students to a range of techniques that are used by neurobiologists and physiologists, including electrophysiology, imaging, and molecular biology. Research projects and exercises will focus on the mechanisms that facilitate the development and physiological activities of the nervous and endocrine systems using model animal systems like zebrafish. We will also study human sensory physiology through non-invasive participatory lab exercises. Students may also have the opportunity to pursue projects examining tissue- and cell-physiology in non-neural tissues.
