Synonym: 62158

Gail D Schwieterman

This course examines the physiological adaptations that allow species to inhabit a wide range of environments including polar regions, deserts, high alpine, the deep sea, and wave-swept coastal habitats. Emphasis will be placed on understanding how organisms cope with environmental extremes (e.g., temperature, low oxygen, pH, salinity and pressure) and in using metabolic theory to predict the ecological impacts of climate change (e.g., global warming, ocean acidification, hypoxia). Associated laboratory will emphasize experimentation and application of physiological concepts in living organisms. 

Prerequisite: Biology 125 and 126; Concurrent registration in Biology 263 required

Charles E Crutchfield

The course will cover the cellular and molecular biology of human skin in its normal and diseased states as it relates to a clinical presentation. Clinical dermatology and pathology will also be reviewed. The course style will be patterned along the lines as if it were a medical school course. Additionally, students will be introduced to many aspects of successfully negotiating medical school including introductions and possible field trips to the Mayo Clinic Medical School and/or University of Minnesota Medical School(s).

Prerequisite: Chemistry 233 and two upper division Biology courses (200 or 300-level) and instructor's permission required

2nd 5 weeks, Instructor Permission Required

CHEM 363.00 Materials Chemistry for a Sustainable Energy Economy 6 credits

Closed: Size: 15, Registered: 29, Waitlist: 0

Hulings 316

Synonym: 62614

Mark D Allendorf

Chemistry is playing a central role in the development of a renewable energy economy. This class will introduce greenhouse gases and atmospheric chemistry as they relate to climate change, followed by discussions of energy utilization, production, transport, and storage. Example chemistries will include electrochemical and solar-driven processes for producing renewable fuels, in particular hydrogen; gas storage using nanoporous materials such as Metal-Organic Frameworks and metal hydrides; carbon-neutral processes for producing critical commodities such as ammonia; and CO2 capture. The interactions between science and government policies will be considered as well.

Prerequisite: Chemistry 224

LING 110.00 Introduction to Linguistics 6 credits

Catherine R Fortin

The capacity to acquire and use natural languages such as English is surely one of the more remarkable features of human nature. In this course, we explore several aspects of this ability. Topics include the sound systems of natural languages, the structure of words, principles that regulate word order, the course of language acquisition in children, and what these reveal about the nature of the mind.

NEUR 238.00 Neurons, Circuits and Behavior 6 credits

Open: Size: 25, Registered: 22, Waitlist: 0

Hulings 316

Synonym: 61920

Eric D Hoopfer

Neurons are the building blocks of the nervous system. Molecular and cellular neuroscience seeks to understand the fundamental principles that govern how neurons function, how they communicate with each other, and how they assemble into circuits that generate behavior. This course focuses on the molecular and cellular basis of nervous system function from the level of genes and molecules to neural circuits and behavior. We will take an integrative approach to examine the genetic, molecular and cellular mechanisms that underlie neuronal communication, the molecular basis of sensation and innate behaviors, neural plasticity, and nervous system disorders. This course will emphasize the experimental evidence and techniques that have built our understanding of the molecular and cellular basis of behavior through team-based learning, analysis of primary literature papers and laboratory experimentation. A grade of C- or better must be earned in both Neuroscience 238 and 239 to satisfy the LS requirement.

Prerequisite: Neuroscience 127 or Biology 125.; Concurrent registration in Neuroscience 239.
