PHY - 503 Physiology of Striated Muscle


This course serves as an introduction to the basic properties of cellular electrophysiology using the cardiac muscle as an example. It introduces structural, molecular and cellular factors of cell excitation as well as its spread throughout the cell and/or tissue. The course should be useful to students of the cardiovascular system or muscle at all different levels across disciplines such as physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology and pathophysiology. The course includes lectures as well as laboratory sessions in which experimental techniques are demonstrated that allow the quantification of the parameters discussed in the lecture. Retake Counts for Credit: No. Pass/No Pass Grading Allowed: Yes. Credit(s): 3
