Fundamentals of Neuroscience: Neurons and Networks

David Cox

Overview

Few fields of research have evolved faster in recent years than neuroscience. For the first time in history, we can explore the microscopic processes behind our conscious experience.

This second installment of the Fundamentals of Neuroscience course from Harvard University goes beyond neurons in isolation to look at the bigger picture. Dr. David Cox, assistant professor in computer science as well as molecular and cellular biology, walks us through how neurons function, from small circuits all the way up to entire brain regions.

During the course, students are introduced to the building blocks of neuronal transmission, our capacity for adaptation through associative learning, and the scientists attempting to upload and understand the data of an entire human brain. Featuring animations and interactive diagrams as well as expert interviews, this module provides an immersive yet accessible way of putting together the pieces of the nervous system.

"People of my generation, who have grown up in a world of big ideas and little data, are not the people who are going to dive in and get the true essence. It's a generation of scientists who had to confront big data in their formative years."

Jeff Lichtman, professor of cellular biology
