9.16 Cellular and Synaptic Neurophysiology


Class Info

Surveys the mechanisms of neuronal communication. Covers ion channels in excitable membrane, single cell computation, synaptic transmission, and synaptic plasticity. Correlates the properties of ion channels and synaptic transmission with their physiological function. Discusses the organizational principles for the formation of functional neural networks at synaptic and cellular levels. Involves discussion of primary literature. Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments.

This class has 9.40 as a prerequisite.

9.16 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by W. Xu.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
