Description

This course surveys the field of Biopsychology. It introduces the kinds of questions traditionally addressed in behavioral neuroscience. The major focus is on how psychological processes relate to the brain. This includes how brain processes cause psychological events and behavior, and how psychological events are encoded in the brain. Another focus is on how brain systems and psychological processes (e.g., perception, cognition) differ across different species, and on how these systems and processes have been shaped by evolutionary pressures (comparative or evolutionary psychology).

Topics will include: principles of behavioral evolution; neuronal mechanisms and brain anatomy; neurochemical signals and their relation to psychoactive drugs; and the brain systems that mediate action, perception, motivation, learning, and cognition in humans and other species.

Course Requirements:

No data submitted

Intended Audience:
