Introduction

 
Mini-Course: Behavioral Neuroanatomy
 
This course aims to provide graduate students and advanced undergraduates an
introduction to the structure and function of the human nervous system. The
emphasis will be on understanding functional systems-sensory, motor, cognitive,
and limbic-in an anatomical framework. Students are expected to be able to apply
learned circuits to evaluate behaviors, deficits, and predict outcomes of lesions.
It is expected that the student will achieve a broad view of the underpinnings of
human behavior. Proposal: Mon/Tues eve 6:30-8pm.
