Neuroscience, which involves the study of the brain and nervous
system, is currently one of the most popular and interesting fields
of science and is widely recognized as a critical frontier in science
and medicine. This course will introduce you to this exciting field,
emphasizing the research strategies and problem solving techniques
employed in understanding how the brain and nervous system are
involved in the production and regulation of human behavior. The
focus will not be on the often bewildering array of neuroscience
information, but rather on the motivations behind the gathering of
this information, the failures and successes experienced, and what
direction neuroscience will likely take in future.
