Primary Instructor:

This course surveys the field of biopsychology, an area of study concerned with biological and evolutionary explanations of perception, cognition, and behavior. Because these functions depend on the nervous system, a major focus of the course will be on the structure and function of the brain with an emphasis on brain-behavior relations.

Topics will include: evolutionary perspectives on the brain and behavior; anatomy and development of the brain; neural signaling (neurotransmitters, drugs, hormones); and neural mechanisms of sensory processing, motor control (movement, action), motivated behavior (feeding, drinking), emotion, mental disorders, learning and memory, and language and cognition.

Students must register for the lecture and one discussion/practicum session. This course is a prerequisite for many upper-level courses in biopsychology.
