Faglig innhold

The course is divided into a sensory part and a motor part. The sensory part describes the signalling events of animal sensory systems, including detection and transduction of signal, as well as propagation, processing and coding of these signals in the peripheral- and the central nervous system. The motor part describes the signaling events of animal motor systems, including planning and execution of movement, as well as some important neurological diseases presented in the context of the mechanisms described.

The course involves writing an essay, usually under supervision, and based on a literature search of a topic. Topics for the essays are related to the content of the course. The project is evaluated as passed/failed. The student must pass the project assignment before (s)he can take the exam.
