Neurophysiology University of Bordeaux
This course provides students with an essential theoretical frameworkfor neurophysiology, so that they understand how the nervous systemcommunicates and processes information, from basic electricalproperties to synaptic plasticity. The course also gives an overview of the techniques used to monitorcellular activity, including specific hands on methods applied inmodern Neuroscience labs using cutting edge techniques in the field.
