Please note that this course has started and enrolment is no longer possible.

We shall look at how nerve, muscle and other excitable cells work, a research field pioneered by Cambridge Nobel Laureates. Beginning with electrochemical gradients, we will go on to look at how neurons develop and propagate electrical signals, how synapses work and how sensory receptors transduce environmental cues. This course will suit biology undergraduates wanting to know more about electrical signalling in the body. Includes a practical in the Department of Physiology (1.2km, c.15 mins walk).
