Description
Neurochemistry explores the overlap of chemistry, biochemistry, and neuroscience. Students will learn about how the central nervous system functions at the molecular level. The topics covered include neurotransmitter synthesis, metabolism, and utilization, how membrane potentials are created, maintained and used in action potentials, and the role of the membrane in neuron function. Students will also delve into the neurochemical literature. (Also listed as NEUR-4360) Lecture- 3 hours per week. Prerequisite: CHEM-3330
