BIOL 1002. General Biology 2. 3 cr. hrs. Covers the diversity of Life, plant form and function, animal form and function, ecology and evolution in context of diversity. 3 hrs. lec., disc. Prereq: BIOL 1001 or cons. of instr.

BIOL 1510. Biology of Human Behavior. 3 cr. hrs. An introduction to the biology of human behavior. Students learn first, how the biological function of the brain affects thoughts, emotions, feelings and open behavior; and second, how our brain is affected by evolution, genes, life experiences and hormones.

BIOL 3301. Cell Biology. 3 cr. hrs.The cell is the basic unit of life; it is the fundamental unit from which all organisms are built. The concepts as well as the scientific evidence that underlie our current understanding of cellular organization and function are emphasized. Key cellular processes including membrane function, signaling, transcriptional regulation, protein targeting, vesicular trafficking, cytoskeleton, cell cycle regulation, and cell death are discussed. These processes are related to our understanding of human disease. 3 hrs. lec., disc. Prereq: BIOL 1001 or BIOL 1001H.

BIOL 4502. Experimental Neurobiology. 3 cr. hrs.Experimental analysis of synapses and neuronal circuitry using a variety of preparations and electrophysiological techniques. The basic electrical properties of excitable cells and chemical communication between cells are investigated. 1 hr. lec., 4 hrs. lab. Prereq: BIOL 4501, which may be taken concurrently, and cons. of dept. ch.; or BIOL 4701 and cons. of dept. ch.
