Graduate/Senior Undergraduate Course in
Neurobiology at Bamfield Marine Station


BAMFIELD MARINE STATION 
Bamfield, a picturesque fishing village on the west coast of Vancouver 
Island, forms the setting for the Marine Station. Nearby, Barkley Sound's 
abundant marine life and rich diversity of habitats afford many unique 
opportunities for teaching and research in the marine and coastal 
sciences. The Station is jointly operated by the University of Alberta, 
the University of British Columbia, the University of Calgary, Simon 
Fraser University and the University of Victoria.

THE COURSE
Invertebrate Neurobiology   (3 weeks:  August 14 - Sept. 1)
Marine Science 502.2(701.2 Calgary)
A practical introduction to modern techniques in neurobiology, with an 
emphasis on their application to behavioural studies.  Lab exercises will 
use  local invertebrate fauna with emphasis on the Mollusca and 
Cnidaria.  Sufficient theoretical background will be given to support 
laboratory work, although students are expected to have at least a senior 
undergraduate standing.
PREREQUISITE:	Introductory physiology:  courses in physics and 			
invertebrates recommended
INSTRUCTORS:	Dr. Andy Spencer, Bamfield Marine Station and 			
University of Alberta,
