Brain and Behavior

Brain and Behavior
Activity within our brains provides the basis for our thoughts and behavior. Brain activity and behavior are dynamic processes subject to both temporary changes (e.g. emotional states, attention, sleep/wake cycles, and sensations) and lasting modifications (e.g. development, language, personality, memory, and therapeutic treatments). In this course, we will explore brain mechanisms that produce such complexity of behavior and examine the contributions of brain activity to psychological and neurodegenerative disorders. In the lab, we will develop our understanding of brain structure, probe our own brain activity, and investigate how chemical changes alter animal behavior in predictable ways.
