Neuroanatomy

Credit Hours: 
3

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:

  1. General methods and methodological issues in neuroanatomy for behavioral scientists
  2. General but reasonably comprehensive knowledge of neuroanatomy of the brain, spinal cord, cranial nerves, and autonomic nervous system
  3. Functional relationships between neuroanatomy and general categories of behavior such as motivation, emotion, sensation, perception, learning, and memory
