Certificate in Animal Behaviour - Systems Neuroscience PSYO 2470   Systems Neuroscience
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This course provides an introduction to the functional systems of the brain. We examine neural systems (e.g., the sensory systems, motor system, neurotransmitter-specific systems) individually. We explore their anatomy and function, neurobiological properties that make each unique, and factors that are common to all neural systems (e.g., development and plasticity).
NOTES: Restricted to students registered in Psychology or Neuroscience Major or Honours programs.
