Fundamentals of Neuroscience Part 2: Neurons and Networks - Harvard UniversityedX
What you'll learn on the course
Fundamentals of Neuroscience
In this second module we will explore how neurons communicate with each other. We will investigate the collective behavior of neurons in small circuits and ways in which signals between neurons are modulated.
Each lesson will be media and content rich and will challenge you to master material with interactive segments that depend on your feedback to move forward in the lesson. You will be able to use virtual labs simulating neurons and circuitry to test your understanding of the course material. Lessons will also be filled with beautiful animations, exploring the richness and complexity of the brain. Documentaries focusing on cutting-edge topics in neuroscience will take you inside labs, hospitals and research institutions around Harvard, MIT and Boston, and quiz banks will allow you to test your knowledge on your own time.
- Fundamental concepts of neuroscience, including the synapse, excitation and inhibition, small circuits, neuromodulation, and potentiation and depression.
