Brain and Behaviour

This course introduces the general relationships between human brain and human behaviour. Human behaviour, including sleep, dreams, memory, thought, motivation, and emotion are discussed in terms of brain structure, chemistry and electrical activity. Both known facts and realistic possibilities of brain function are considered. Some emphasis is placed on the contribution of psychological (and social) factors to brain structure, physiology, and human disease. A general introduction to psychopharmacology is offered. Prior high school courses in biology and chemistry are helpful. PREREQ: PSYC 1105 or 1st-year science course (preferably chemistry or biology). (lec 3, lab 3) cr 3.
