Cellular Neurobiology and Physiology (Online) University of Bordeaux
> Learning objectives: - Understand how a neuron is organized - Know and understand specific morpho-functional features of neurons - Know different neural cell types (neurons and glial cells) - Understand the concepts and mechanisms of neurotransmission - Understand the chemical principles of ion movements across themembrane - Understand the basis of neuronal excitability - Understand how an action potential is generated and propagates - Understand the main techniques used to probe cellular activity ofneural cells (morphological approaches, cell cultures,electrophysiology, basis of biochemistry and molecular biology, basison mutant animal models) - Analyze critically scientific publications of cellular neurobiology - Collect and organize data on a previously unknown topic
> Applicants should have basis in: - Cell biology (ultrastructural cellular organisation, intercellularcommunication, etc), - Theoretical knowledge on common techniques to be performed in cellbiology studies, - Practical knowledge of some techniques.
- Article presentation or course presentation (flipped classroom)(40%). - Final exam (60%).
