Fundamentals of Neuroscience: The Electrical Properties of the Neuron

David Cox

Overview

Our nervous systems are the basis of many fundamental human actions. They enable survival reflexes such as fight-or-flight as well as day-to-day movements like walking.

In this first installment of their Fundamentals of Neuroscience course, Harvard lays down the foundation of the nervous system: the neuron. The course is led by Assistant Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology David Cox, who takes an interdisciplinary approach, applying concepts from chemistry, physics, and maths to the context of the neuron.

The course promotes hands-on learning for building an understanding of how electrical signals are created and transported by our nervous systems.
