Course Description

Neurons work together in neural circuits to control behaviors. The neural circuit that controls our sleep-wake cycles is well understood and vitally important to our daily lives. In this course, we will use the experience of sleep to explore the concept of neural circuits and expand our knowledge of neural communication.Pre-requisites: This course can be taken alone, or in conjunction with ‘Cells of the Nervous System’ and ‘Using neural signaling to understand pain’ which describe the cells of our system and how they communicate. ‘Introduction to the nervous system’ recommended. This course aligns with the Neurological Disorders Unit 4: How do our neurons work together to control behaviors? of the Great Diseases high school curriculum
