"Students like my lab course..."
CONTENT: Neuroanatomical, electrophysiological, and biochemical substrates of psychological processes.
PREREQUISITES: 312-1 or equivalent; 205 recommended.
TEACHING METHOD: There are two (1 hour, 20 minute) lectures per week. There are reading assignments in a textbook as well as in selected papers from the primary literature in neurobiology. Lectures and readings are sometimes designed to overlap (e.g., when the material is especially difficult or controversial), but often these two sources of information are independent.
EVALUATION METHOD: Exams will cover lecture and reading material in approximately equal amounts. A midterm and non-cumulative final exam will each determine 50% of the final grade. Absence from a major exam will result in a score of zero for that exam unless a written medical explanation is presented.
