PSY 310 Brain and Behavior

Fall

This course applies the physiological foundations that have been discussed in the prerequisite courses to examine neural processes underlying sensation, movement, sleep, and other complex behaviors. Students will also learn about modern methods in neuroscience. In addition to examining neuroscientific data and methods, this course also emphasizes the development of skills necessary to interpret and communicate complex scientific information at a lay level. As such, students will work throughout the term to develop a brain outreach activity designed to teach local children about the brain and behavior. Students will conduct this brain outreach at the conclusion of the term. Prerequisite: PSY 100  

3 credit hours
