PSY 225 - Brain, Mind and Behavior

This course will serve as an introduction to neuroscience through a survey of topics that focus on the structure, function, and development of the nervous system. We will also explore how this system produces various behaviors such as sensation and perception, sleep, language, learning, and clinical disorders.

By the end of this course, you will have an understanding of the neurobiological mechanisms that underlie our cognitive processes and behaviors, i.e. how the brain communicates with the body and vice versa. You will be able to critically evaluate scientific literature and discuss the intersection between neuroscience, psychology, and behavior.
