LASM 917 - Brain and Behavior

3 credits
This course is an introduction to the organization of the brain and nervous system and to their interactions with other body systems that produce observable behavior. Topics include brain structure and function, neurological changes over the life cycle, and the effects of malfunctions. Students learn about specific brain structures and how they contribute to or produce specific behavioral characteristics. We explore the neurochemistry of drug addiction, degenerative diseases, and psycho-active drugs, as well as other current topics of interest.
