Primary Instructor: Frank B. Sachse
Designation:Elective
Credits: 3.0
Semesters Offered:Fall
Frequency Offered:Even Years
Cross Listings:Physiol 6003
Prerequisites:BE 6000, BE 6010, BE 6430, or instructor permission
Catalog Description: The goal of this class is to provide an intermediate level overview of electrophysiology and biophysics at the level of the membrane and cell to students with special interest in cardiology and neurosciences. We will develop the structural and functional characteristics at each scale with emphasis on integration across the scales. We will try to emphasize common elements of structure, function, and control that arise across the cardiovascular and nervous systems and also across species and also identify differentiating features. The approach will be a combination of qualitative explanations, quantitative analysis, laboratory experience, and mathematical simulation. The prerequisite for the course are Bioengineering 6000, 6010, 6430, or equivalent or permission of the instructor and knowledge of university undergraduate level calculus and physics. Assignments will require the use of computational software. All course materials will be available through the University of Utah Canvas software and the class will communicate using this software.
