Biophysics

In modern sciences chemistry, biology and physics – and even medicine - are hardly separable. One important example is the neurophysiology.

Information processing in the nervous system depends on physical principles: nerve cells build up electrical potentials across their membranes. These membrane potentials are modulated using precisely controlled ion currents in order encode signals. The voltage changes are passed along the nerve fibers and affect the behavior of downstream cells both by electrical and chemical synapses.

 

In this course, different measurement and presentation methods are applied in order to understand the electrical properties of a biological system in more detail.
