NEU 466G NEU 466G. Functional and Synaptic Neuroanatomy. 4 Hours.
Neuroanatomy and function of synapses as a basis for brain function and behavior. Examine the ultrastructure and function of synapses, dendrites and axons underlying basic synaptic transmission and plasticity. Laboratory projects involve three-dimensional reconstructions from serial section electron microscopy. Three lecture hours and one-and-one-half laboratory hours a week for one semester. Only one of the following may be counted: Biology 337 (Topic: Neurobiology of Synaptic Circuits), 337 (Topic: Human Neuroanatomy), Neuroscience 466G. Prerequisite: Neuroscience 335 with a grade of at least C-.
