Lecture—5 hours. Prerequisite: Biological Sciences 102 and Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior 101. First of three courses presenting fundamental principles of pharmacology and toxicology. Introductory overview of basic concepts in pharmacology/toxicology, followed by in-depth blocks on fate processes of chemicals in the body, fate processes in tissue selective responses, selective toxicity employed therapeutically.—F. (F.)  Puschner, Knych

202. Principles of Pharmacology and Toxicology II (4)

Lecture—4 hours. Prerequisite: course 201. The second of three courses presenting fundamental principles of pharmacology and toxicology. Principles of pharmacodynamics and mechanisms of drug/toxicant actions.—W. (W.) Angelastro, Eiserich

203. Principles of Pharmacology and Toxicology III (4)

Lecture—4 hours. Prerequisite: courses 201 and 202. Integrated physiological systems, cardiovascular and nervous systems and how drugs and toxicants act to perturb function.—S. (S.)  Berman, Gelli

215. Electrophysiology Techniques and Applications (3)
