Day course offered in the Spring.

This course explores the fundamental relationships between the nervous system, behavior and cognition, giving particular emphasis to the molecular and cellular mechanisms that underlie behavioral and cognitive activity, as viewed from a comparative, evolutionary perspective. Starting with a thorough grounding in basic molecular, cellular and systems neurobiology, students will examine the neurobiological correlates of sensation and perception, movement, language and communication, sexual dimorphism, and learning and memory, in a variety of model systems, ranging from Hydra to humans. Required for majors with a concentration in Neuroscience and Behavior.

Prerequisite(s): BIOL 1800  or BIOL 1900  plus PSY 1100  or PSY 2140 .
