    Overview
    Hello everyone! Welcome to advanced neurobiology!

    Neuroscience is a wonderful branch of science on how our brain perceives the external world, how our brain thinks, how our brain responds to the outside of the world, and how during disease or aging the neuronal connections deteriorate. We’re trying to understand the molecular, cellular nature and the circuitry arrangement of how nervous system works.

    Through this course, you'll have a comprehensive understanding of basic neuroanatomy, electral signal transduction, movement and several diseases in the nervous system.

    This advanced neurobiology course is composed of 2 parts (Advanced neurobiology I and Advanced neurobiology II, and the latter will be online later). They are related to each other on the content but separate on scoring and certification, so you can choose either or both. It’s recommended that you take them sequentially and it’s great if you’ve already acquired a basic understanding of biology.

    Thank you for joining us!

    Syllabus
    Anatomy of the Nervous System
    Let's start with a basic introduction of neuroanatomy.

    Morphology of the neuronal cell & Cellular and Molecular Biology of the Neuron
    Let's learn more about the basic unit of the nervous system: the neuron.

    Cellular and Molecular Biology of the Neuron
    Let‘s continue with the neuron.

    Signaling within neurons & Ion channels and membrane potentials
    Let's switch to the electrical properties of the neuron.

    Ion channels, membrane potential and synaptic transmission
    Let's continue with the ion channels, membrane potential and synaptic transmission.

    Neurotransmitter release
    Let's learn more about the neurotransmitter release.

    Synaptic transmission & Synapitic plasticity
    Let's continue with synaptic transmission and synapitic plasticity.

    Techniques in neuroscience
    Let's learn some prevalent techniques in neuroscience.

    Taught by
    Yan Zhang and Yulong Li
