Integrative Neurosci Lab

Gain skills necessary to conduct neuroscience research and integrate findings from multiple levels of analysis (molecular, cellular and behavioral). Team-based learning format and collaboration with neuroscience lab to generate, analyze, and communicate novel scientific findings. Experimentation will occur in a model organism and may include PCR, live cell imaging and/or behavioral conditioning experiments. Prerequisite: Neuroscience 101.

Human Embryology

The development of the mammalian embryo. Emphasis on human embry- ology, the origin of major human teratologies, birth defects, ethical and social issues of reproductive biology, aspects of comparative vertebrate development. The evolution of developmental patterns, and the molecular mechanisms of development. Prerequisites: Biology 330L or 414LS or Evolutionary Anthropology 333L or equivalent. Permission of instructor required. One course.

Principles of Animal Physiology

This course examines the physiological principles that guide animal life processes. Framed in an evolutionary context, processes including respiration, circulation, neural control, movement, excretion and metabolism will be understood in terms of core principles that also apply to humans. Laboratories will include directed and self-directed investigations into animal physiology using research grade data acquisition systems. Not open to students who have taken Biology 329D or BME 244L. Prerequisites: Biology 20 or 201L and Physics 141L and Chemistry 101DL.
