Basic, functional neuroanatomy of mammals, including humans, is emphasized to provide a foundation for understanding the neuroanatomical substrates of perception, motivation, emotion, learning, and other cognitive and behavioral processes.
By the end of this course students should have learned:
- General methods and methodological issues in neuroanatomy for behavioral scientists
- General but reasonably comprehensive knowledge of neuroanatomy of the brain, spinal cord, cranial nerves, and autonomic nervous system
- Functional relationships between neuroanatomy and general categories of behavior such as motivation, emotion, sensation, perception, learning, and memory
