HS 359 - Neuropharmacology


This neuropharmacology course will explore the molecular mechanisms of action of drugs that modify nerve cell function, and subsequently behavior. The specific focus of this course will be to provide a description of the cellular and molecular actions of drugs on synaptic transmission. Discussion will include functioning of both the central and peripheral nervous systems. Selected neurotransmitter systems will be described in depth, and as time permits, the neurochemical basis for selected disease states such as Alzheimer’s disease and traumatic brain injury will be discussed.

Requisites: HS 350 , HS 351 , and HS 355  

Credits: 3 cr
