PSYC 4052 (Behavioral Neuroscience) Course Description:

This course is designed to provide an intensive introduction to the principles of neuroscience.  It initially covers the detailed neuroanatomy of human forebrain, hindbrain and spinal cord.  This is followed by neurophysiology with a concentration on the electrophysiology of neural systems.  The basics of neuroanatomy and neurophysiology are then applied to an examination of the structure and function of visual, auditory, and sensorimotor systems in animal and man.
