These are very unique times for brain research. The aperitif for the course will thus highlight the present “brain-excitements” worldwide. You will then become intimately acquainted with the operational principles of neuronal “life-ware” (synapses, neurons and the networks that they form) and consequently, on how neurons behave as computational microchips and how they plastically and constantly change - a process that underlies learning and memory.

Zoology is the scientific study of diversity of animal life, classification, physiology, behavior, and evolution. Unicellular organisms have evolved into complex multicellular forms. Organisms, both unicellular and multicellular, in various complex shapes and sizes are found in almost every habitat and environment.

Bioenergética é usar a palavra energia para explicar os fenômenos do organismo vivo. Estuda as transformações permitidas e quais são as proibidas; como o organismo escolhe, entre várias transformações possíveis, aquelas que levam ao crescimento e à multiplicação; como as leis da termodinâmica moldam as possibilidades do ser vivo.

Marine Biology is the study of ocean life. As you might expect, life in salt water is vastly different from life in a terrestrial or freshwater environment due to factors like salinity, water circulation, and atmospheric pressure. How, for example, can organisms living in salt water avoid dehydration? How do organisms living in the depths of the ocean handle the immense pressure? How do the environmental factors in marine communities affect biodiversity? How do some animals manage to alternate between the demands of terrestrial life and the demands of marine life? In this course, you will learn the answers to these questions and more. This course will touch on a number of different subfields of biological study (including biochemistry, physiology, zoology, botany, and ecology) within the context of the ocean environment.

Biochemistry is the study of the chemical processes and compounds, such as cellular makeup, that bring about life in organisms. It is a combination of multiple science fields; you can think of it as general and cell biology coupled with organic and general chemistry.
