IPHY 4720 Neurophysiology Circuits and basic principles of electricity ** In addition to this handout, read pp. 173-177 in Enoka. ** Neurons are specialized cells that are capable of sending and receiving electrical signals. To appreciate the function of neuronal signaling, one must understand the underlying physics of electricity. Thus far, you have learned some theory behind the principles of electricity. This lab encourages you to further explore and understand these principles by creating your own circuits and testing them. In doing so, you can verify and reaffirm what you have learned in lecture. Vocabulary battery capacitance conductance conductance coulomb driving force farad in series in parallel ohm Ohm’s law siemen specific membrane capacitance time constant Supplied materials Multi-meter Bread board 9 V battery with leads to connect to circuit Circuit components (solid core wire, resisters and capacitors) Procedures Begin by quantifying the components you will use.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
