An examination of the cellular bases of behavior emphasizing
contemporary views and approaches to the study of the nervous system.
Neural structure, function, and organization are considered in
relation to sensory and motor function, motivation, learning, and
other basic behaviors. Emphasis is placed on the mechanisms by which
the nervous system regulates and controls development, sensory
processes, movement, motivated behaviors, learning, memory, language
and cognition. Students are introduced to the variety of brain
structures and systems involved in generating behavior, psychological
processes, and neuropsychological disorders.
