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.
