CONTENT

This course will focus on the biological basis of human brain, covering topics such as neural functioning (membrane potentials, ion channels, neurotransmitters, synapses, etc.), the basis of brain organization (cortices, nuclei, axonal paths, etc.), and main neural circuitries (sensory pathways, motor system, limbic system, autonomous nervous system etc.). There will be a particular emphasis to link these electrical, chemical, and anatomical notions to the behavioral output. Topics include (but are not limited to) brain basic anatomy and function, a relationship between neural and chemical systems working together in the brain, and how we perceive the world around us.
