This course examines 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, learning and memory, cognition
and language, and other basic behaviors. We will present an overview
of brain function that draws on basic concepts in the biological,
physical, and behavioral sciences. Specifically, we will focus on the
relationship between subjective experience -- perception, thought, and
action -- and its physical substrate -- the cells and structures of
the nervous system.
