Behavioral Neuroscience

This course considers the contributions of the nervous system to the understanding of the behavior of humans and other animals. To this end, the course surveys the basic structure and function of the nervous system, the principle methods for its study, and how knowledge of it informs an understanding of such phenomena as sensation and perception, movement, sleep, emotion, learning and memory, language, and abnormal behavior.

Prerequisites: PSYC 101; it is suggested, but not required, that students have completed BIOL 101 or 111.
