Ion Channels: Structure and Function

Units: 1.5

Electrical signals in neurons are produced by voltage-gated and ligand-gated ion channels. Any disturbance in the function of ion channels can lead to major neurological disorders. This course will allow students to learn the structure and function of some of the major voltage- and ligand-gated ion channels. Mechanisms of ligand binding, gating and ion selectivity will be covered. The structure of the course will be based primarily on critical discussion of research papers.

Graduate course in the Biology program offered by the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
