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.
