Behavioral Neuroendocrinology

Behavioral Neuroendocrinology
In many species, hormones interact with the nervous system and environment to influence behavior. To what degree do these principles apply to humans? We will study basic principles of endocrinology and the nervous system and how hormones influence both human and nonhuman species. Competing social/environmental theories also will be addressed, but are not a major course emphasis. Topics may include: hormonal involvement in behavioral sex differences (e.g., cognition, aggression, parental behavior), reproduction, mood, stress, neuroanatomy, and sexual orientation. Students should know fundamental structures and operation of the nervous system. (PSYC 0301; open to junior and senior psychology and neuroscience majors only) 3 hrs. sem.
