Advanced consideration of the molecular events between drug or hormone binding to receptors and the resulting responses. Emphasizes roles played by signal transduction pathways in regulation of synaptic plasticity, memory formation, neuronal apoptosis, and developmental neurobiology. Prerequisite: UCONJ 532 or permission of instructor. Offered: W, even years.
This is an advanced sgnal transduction course which focuses on explaining Neurophysiology in terms of neuronal signaling mechansisms.
Pharmacology 530 will meet Wed, 3:00 to 5:00. The class will meet in K-550.
