Anthropology | Hormones and Behavior
B400 | 26401 | Muehlenbein


Prereq  Junior or Senior standing with an introductory course in
Biology, Psychology, Medical Sciences or Bioanthropology

This course will review the roles of hormones in the evolution and
expression of animal behavior, particularly that of humans. Emphasis
will be placed on behaviors associated with aggression, stress,
mating, and parenting. The format for the course will be introductory
lectures given by myself on particular topics followed by group
discussions and student/guest presentations. Although the foci of this
course are based on evolutionary biology, readings are selected to
reflect the general interests of natural and social scientists alike.
This course is particularly relevant for students interested in human
health, particularly anthropology, biology, psychology, nursing, and
pre-medicine.
