A User's Guide to the Brain

Two years of high school biology required.

Brain function depends upon intricate connections among nerve cells strategically positioned to process information. This means you will learn about the physiology of individual nerve cells and the operation of synaptic communications among nerve cells. Because sensory systems are reasonably well understood, they provide an opportunity to understand how the brain works. As we sort through various functions of the brain, we will eventually consider whether it is possible for someone to read or modify your thoughts and feelings.
