29/03/2020


Puisque le confinement semble parti pour durer encore plusieurs jours ou semaines, nous te proposons de suivre les cours en ligne gratuits proposés par l'Université de Harvard.

Pars à la découverte des neurosciences ! avec David Cox, Assistant Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology, and Computer Science, Harvard University


Il s'agit d'un cours en 2 parties (de 3 à 5h par semaine, pendant 11 semaines, dont tu choisis le rythme), disponible jusqu'au 31 mai prochain.


Fundamental of Neuroscience, part 1 : The Electrical Properties of the Neuron

Learn how electricity makes the neurons in your brain tick. 

What you'll learn

- Fundamentals of bioelectricity
- The importance of resting potential
- The properties of passive membranes
- Action potentials, their currents, and their role in the nervous system
- How you can do neuroscience in your home

Course description

Fundamentals of Neuroscience is a three-course series that explores the structure and function of the nervous system—from the inner workings of a single nerve cell to the staggering complexity of the brain and the social interactions they enable.

In this first course, you'll learn how individual neurons use electricity to transmit information. You'll build a neuron, piece by piece, using interactive simulations, then travel around Harvard's campus, where you'll see the inner workings of a lab and learn how to conduct DIY neuroscience experiments on your own.

Join us as we study the electrical properties in individual neurons, building a foundation for understanding the function of the entire nervous system.

Course outline

- Lesson 1 : The Resting Potential
- Lesson 2 : Passive Membrane Properties
- Lesson 3 : Action Potentials
- Lesson 4 : Action Potential Propagation
- Lesson 5 : DIY Labs

 Fundamental of Neuroscience, part 2 : Neurons and Networks

Discover how neurons work together to create complex networks inside the brain. 

What you'll learn
- Basics of synapses
- How neurons communicate with each other
- How interconnected neurons in neuronal circuits interact with each other
- The role of neuromodulation in the firing of synapses

Course description

Neurons in isolation are fascinating and complicated, but the real magic of neuroscience happens in the interaction between neurons. In this course, we examine how neurons pass signals to one another and how complex dynamics can result from just a few neurons arranged in relatively simple circuits.

Continue your journey through our Fundamentals of Neuroscience series with animations that explore the richness and complexity of the brain, documentaries about working labs around Cambridge.

Join us as we use virtual labs that simulate neuron circuitry as we investigate the collective behavior of neurons and learn how the brain modulates the signals in those networks.

Course outline

- Lesson 1 : The Synapse
- Lesson 2 : Excitation & Inhibition
- Lesson 3 : Small Circuits
- Lesson 4 : Neuromodulation
- Lesson 5 : Potentiation & Depression
