P457 and P657:  Stress Effects on Brain and Behavior.  Stress
produces a variety of effects, both beneficial and detrimental, on
the brain and behavior.  This seminar will examine the neurobiology
of stress effects on cognition, psychopathology, and health, from
the cellular to the systems level.  Through readings drawn from
primary literature sources, discussions, and lectures, you will
develop a base of knowledge and think critically about stress and
its neural and behavioral effects.  Evaluation will be based on
brief written summaries of the assigned weekly readings, two take-
home essay exams (a midterm and a final), a paper, and class
participation.
