BME CM106/C206 BE M106 - Introduction to the Biophysics of Membranes and Channels Jacob Schmidt ( [email protected] ) 5121G Engineering V 5-4451 FALL QUARTER 2010 Lecture: MW 4:00-5:50 5440 Boelter Hall Discussion Section 1A: F 9:00-9:50 5440 Boelter Hall TA: Bin Lu Discussion Section 1B: F 11:00-11:50 4216 Young Hall TA: Shiva Portonovo Office Hours: 5-6 Th 5101 EngV and by appointment. This course is intended to introduce the student to the physics underlying the electrical properties of channels, membranes, and excitable cells. We will cover basic electrostatics in dielectric media, charge screening in electrolytes, Nernst-Planck equation, Donnan potentials, GHK equations, action potentials and the HH equation, and conduction of action potentials within cells. For all of these topics, we focus on a physical rather than a biological approach. Grading: Undergraduate students: 10% homework, 30% midterm, 40% final exam, 20% project Graduate students: 30% midterm, 40% final exam, 30% project The midterm will be Nov 1.
