Course content / topics

This lecture will teach students the biochemical principles of biosynthesis of neurochemicals (structural components of specialized membranes, myelin, and neurotransmitters). The use and signal transduction of neurotransmitters and diseases caused by specific impairments (e.g. dopamine - Parkinson’s disease, acetylcholine – Alzheimer’s disease and glutamate – stroke) will be explained. The lecture complements the parallel courses on molecular and cell biology of neurons and glia and provides the ground work for the courses on genetic basis of neural diseases.
