Depression, schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease and other
psychological disorders exact a huge toll in human suffering and
clinical services.

This course surveys the role of disturbed neural mechanisms on the
development of psychological disorders. The relationship of neural
disturbances to genetic variations, and to cognitive and affective
abnormalities, will also be addressed. Methods for investigating
mechanisms and evaluating treatments will be critically evaluated.
Prerequisites: P326 (Behavioral Neuroscience) or P346 (Neuroscience)
are required before enrolling, or equivalent. This course counts as
an advanced neuroscience course for the Neuroscience Major as well
as toward a BA or BS in Psychological and Brain Sciences.
