PS 314/314H

Biopsychology

The biological processes underlying behavior of organisms. The course will examine the nervous system at the level of the neuron and synapse, subsystems within the brain, and the brain itself. An attempt will be made to relate these levels and systems to behavior (as far as is currently known). Since this is a relatively new science, many current issues will be discussed as they arise. Prerequisite: Psychology 101. Credit, 3 hours.
