Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology, 15 credits

About this education

The course covers the biochemistry of the nervous system; neurotransmitter synthesis and metabolic mechanisms of at the synapse, release and re-uptake/degradation of classical neurotransmitters and peptide transmitters. Receptors for neurotransmitters and their ligands are described from a chemical-pharmacological point of view and the relevance of these molecules and their interactions for development of tolerance, supersensitivity and long term potentiation are discussed. Aspects of neurochemistry as a basis for neuropharmacology are discussed. The course is useful for advanced studies in biology or chemistry or for work in the pharmaceutical industry.
