Physics 89 - Honors Discussion Session for 6C


Course Description:


This course is specifically designed for highly motivated life science majors in Physics 6C in Winter 2014 to explore the physics behind life’s dynamical behavior, in conjunction with a newly developed 6C Lab (G13). Through this class, we will study behavior of a simple model animal called C. elegans that has only 302 neurons. Emphasis is given to the physics in the environment of C. elegans and human beings, as well as their/our neural networks that make sensible, prompt decisions for their/our survival.
