    PHYSIOLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY

    Fall Quarter 2006

    Units: 4
    Prerequisites: Psychology 1, 41 and 101.
    Psychology is the study of behavior, but underlying all behavior is the biology of the organism. This course examines the relationship of neuroanatomy and physiology to social behavior, homeostasis, motivation, biological rhythms, emotion and psychopathology, in humans and other animals. In this modern age of self-help, recognition of mental disorders as diseases, and bullet drugs, physiological psychology and neuroscience are becoming increasingly important. Accordingly, all students of psychology should have a good understanding of the biological underpinning of behavior. This course will provide students with this background as well as with an introduction to the methodology of physiological psychology and neuroscience.
