Brain, Mind and Behavior

Biological Science, Social and Behavioral Sciences

The human brain is the most complex structure in the known universe. The study of its structure and function and how it figures into our actions and experience is one of the most exciting arenas of modern science. This class will begin with molecules and cells, build up to brains and nervous systems, encompass neural signaling, sensory perception, memory, language, and emotion, and culminate with the great mystery of how brain processes relate to mental experience, that is, how the mind is related to the brain. This is a comprehensive introduction to the exciting subject of contemporary neuroscience open to any and all interested students.
