||N500 Neural Science I
Basic introduction and current trends in cellular neurophysiology, neurocytology, synaptic processes, and neuroanatomy.
N501 Neural Science II
P: N500. Continuation of Neural Science I emphasizing higher integrative processes such as perception, cognition, and memory. Special emphasis will be placed on timely topics and topics of particular relevance to members of the class.
N550 Sem. Sensorimotor Neuroplasticity
P: graduate status and consent of instructor. This course is intended to introduce students to the research methodologies and experimental findings of studies addressing sensorimotor brain plasticity. While the specific content of the course may vary across semesters, the overarching goal is to provide students with a firm grounding in the primary literature representing this area of research so that they become familiar with the mechanisms of neural plasticity from systemwide to molecular levels.
P526 Neurobiology of Learning & Memory
Comprehensive survey of the cellular and molecular bases of associative and nonassociative forms of learning and memory. Vertebrate and invertebrate model systems and preparations as well as data obtained from the human neuropsychology literature will be studied.
P527 Developmental Psychobiology
Ontogeny of sensory-motor behavior and its underlying anatomical and physiological development.
Q551 Brain and Cognition
An introduction to neural mechanisms underlying complex cognition, and a survey of topics inneuroscience related to cognition. It provides a solid background in human biopsychology.
Q700 Theoretical Issues in Animal Cognition
It is an intensive study of specific topics in Cognitive Science. Topics and instructors will change regularly. It may be repeated.
||Q301 Brain and Cognition (3 cr.)
This course covers recent techniques and findings of the emerging field of cognitive neuroscience. In this course, students are introduced to the anatomy of the brain, neurons, and how they function, and hardware and methodologies of cognitive neuroscience research. Cognitive systems (visual, auditory, attention, memory, learning, and language) are also addressed. Students are exposed to the content by addressing large problems that encompass a number of cognitive neuroscience issues. This approach provides students opportunities to focus on personal areas of interest in cognitive neuroscience.
P101 Introductory Psychology I (3 cr.)
Introduction to psychology; its methods, data, and theoretical interpretations in areas of learning, sensory psychology, and psychophysiology.
P102 Introductory Psychology II (3 cr.)
Continuation of P101. Developmental, social, personality, and abnormal psychology.
P106 General Psychology, Honors (4 cr.)
Intensive introduction to psychology. Lectures and demonstrations, laboratory exercises, and student projects. Combines material from P101 and P102, or P151 and P152.
P325 Psychology of Learning (3 cr.)
Facts and principles of animal and human learning, especially as treated in theories attempting to provide frameworks for understanding what learning is and how it takes place.
P410 Development of the Brain and Behavior (3 cr.)
Examination of the interaction of the developing brain with the behavior it mediates. Cellular, systems, and organismal levels of analysis will all be considered in the organization of structure function relationships in the neural basis of behavior.
P411 Neural Bases of Learning and Memory (3 cr.)
Comprehensive survey of theories and data concerned with neural correlates of associative and non-associative forms of learning and memory. Vertebrate and invertebrate model systems and preparations as well as data obtained from the human neuropsychology literature will be studied.
P416 Comparative Animal Physiology (3 cr.)
Advanced treatment of history, basic concepts, theories and experimental literature examining the relation of learning and evolution. Compares ethological, comparative, and general process approaches.
P417 Animal Behavior (3 cr.)
Methods, findings, and interpretations of recent investigations of animal behavior.
P444 Developmental Psychobiology (3 cr.)
Survey of phylogenetic and ontogenetic principles from a comparative perspective. Focuses on a broad biological approach to organic and social development.
