This course will introduce the concepts and contemporary research in the field of neuroscience and behavior. The course is intended for prospective neuroscience and behavior majors (for whom it is required) and for nonmajors who wish a broad introduction to neuroscience. It provides general education credit as an NSM course, but is not designed for non-science students. The initial few weeks will be devoted to fundamental concepts of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology. Subsequent classes will deal in depth with fundamental problems of nervous system function and the neural basis of behavior, including the control of movement, sensory organization and perception, and learning and memory. Experimental results from a variety of species will be considered.
