Neurobiology

Laboratory

Course Themes

Using electrophysiology techniques, we'll record neural activity from living organisms, including your own brain.

We'll explore the ways in which the organization of neural circuits underlies their function & ultimately behavior.

Neuroscience is getting bigger & more open. We'll take a look at a few open access datasets from mice & humans.

Experiments

Extracellular recordings in the earthworm

Intracellular recordings in leech ganglia

Optogenetics & behavior in fruit flies

EEG & EMG recordings in humans

Still not sure if you should take BIPN 145?
