    Fall Quarter 2008

    Units: 4
    Prerequisites: Psychology 1, 41.
    Course description: The main goal of this course is to provide you with a broad overview of the field of psychobiology.  All behavior has a biological basis, as the central nervous system regulates behavior.  However, the brain-behavior relationship is also a two-way street, as the chemical and anatomical structure of the brain is influenced by the environment.  Topics that will be covered include structure of the central nervous system, development, behavioral genetics, sensory processes, learning and memory, emotions, and communication.  As much as possible we will discuss the experiments that provide the insights into how systems work.
