Lecture 11: Passive electrical properties of the Neuron II and the Synapse17/09/2016
We continue discussion of the cable properties of axons, and begin discussion of the synapse.
Lecture 10: Passive electrical properties of the Neuron17/09/2016
We begin section two of the course with a description of the cable properties of axons.
Lecture 9: Article discussion and exam details17/09/2016
We discuss the article, "The evolutionary origins of beneficial alleles tduring the repeated adaptation of garter snakes to deadly prey."
Lecture 8: Ionic basis for the action potential II and exam review17/09/2016
We finish our discussion of the ion currents associated with the action potential, and go through some example exam questions for review.
Lecture 7: Ionic basis for the action potential17/09/2016
We discuss the ionic currents associated with the action potential, and their physical origin in the opening of voltage-gated channels.
Lecture 6: Ionic basis for the RMP (part two) and voltage clamp17/09/2016
We finish our look at the resting membrane potential, then begin to understand the voltage clamp method on our way to exploring the ionic currents associated with the action potential.
Lecture 5: Ionic basis for the resting membrane potential (first pass)17/09/2016
Wrapping up the molecular structure of ion channels, then a first look at how ions set the resting membrane potential.
Lecture 4: Ion Channel Structure17/09/2016
Continuation of our discussion of the molecular structure of ion channels.
Lecture 3: Ionic Current, Equilibrium and introduction to channel structure17/09/2016
Today we discuss the factors that influence ion current, talk more in detail about the Nernst Equation, and begin our discussion of the molecular structure of ion channels.
Lecture 2: Patch Clamp and Ionic Current17/09/2016
Today we discuss the various patch clamp configurations, how to evaluate patch clamp data, and factors that influence ion current.
Lecture 1: Intro and Ions17/09/2016
In this lecture, we discuss the history and diversity of neuroscience, and begin discussion of the ions responsible for electrical charge in the neuron.
