Course Description

In this course you will use fundamental engineering and mathematical tools to understand and analyze basic bioelectricity and circuit theory in the context of the mammalian nervous system.

 

This course is for students who are interested in learning about relating the systems of the human body that involve or communicate with bioelectrical systems, including the heart, brain, muscles, and the neuromuscular system that connects them all together. 

Students will learn how bioelectricity can be used to record and control the way the body electric behaves. Suggested text: “Neuroscience” by Purves, et al. 

This course is offered by the nanoHUB-U project, which is jointly funded by Purdue and NSF with the goal of transcending disciplines through short courses accessible to students in any branch of science or engineering. These courses focus on cutting-edge topics distilled into short lectures with quizzes, homew...

Let me start this review by saying that the course staff, headed by Prof. Irazoqui, are prominent researchers in their field and their work is incredibly interesting and relevant. Having said that, I was somewhat disappointed that the course didn’t show that to the extent it should have, except for the excellent lecture videos by Prof. Irazoqui. The course lacked a weekly rhythm imposed by a well-planned schedule, and graded weekly targets, so the discussion forum, which is often one of the best aspects of online learning, was left virtually unmoderated and served mainly as a place to vent about practicum software issues and the course's buggy grading system. The practicum, although very interesting and potentially highly rewarding in its concept, has become a cause of some student aggravation, since the Raspberry Pi/Linux/Python stack has shown to be too high maintenance and distracted the students from focussing on the signals and ...

The practicum, although very interesting and potentially highly rewarding in its concept, has become a cause of some student aggravation, since the Raspberry Pi/Linux/Python stack has shown to be too high maintenance and distracted the students from focussing on the signals and their processing. The potentially very interesting practical work with bioelectric signals, and later a numerical solution of the seminal Hodgkin-Huxley equation, was left without academic reward since the assignments were neither compulsory nor graded, which was somewhat demotivating. Finally, the unavailability of the solutions for the midterm and the final exam left the students in the dark, without possibility to learn from their mistakes. I think this course has a great potential and could, with some effort from the course staff, do justice to its fabulous topic and easily become one of the most attractive MOOC offerings.
