Introduction to Biological Psychology

Listed in: Psychology, as PSYC-12

Faculty

John-Paul Baird (Section 01)

Description

This course will examine how brain function regulates a broad range of mental processes and behaviors. We will discuss how neurons work and how the brain obtains information about the environment (sensory systems), regulates an organism's response to the environment (motor systems), controls basic functions necessary for survival such as eating, drinking, sex, and sleep, and mediates higher cognitive function such as memory and language. We will also consider the consequences of brain malfunction as manifested in various forms of disease and mental illness. Limited to 75 students. First and second semesters. Professor Baird.
