2018-2019 Catalog

BIO 340 Sensory Biology and Neurophysiology

Dynamic physiological properties will be examined in single cells, tissues, and whole organisms. Emphasis will be placed on sensory physiology and neuroethology (study of the neural basis of natural animal behaviors). Laboratories will utilize advanced recording techniques, including microelectrodes, isometric tension measurements, semi-intact preparations, and modern electronics.
