*Taught Online for Summer 2021*  This course examines how the brain generates behavior.  Topics covered include the organization of the nervous system, the mechanisms by which the brain translates external stimuli into electrical and chemical signals to initiate or modify behavior, and the neurological bases of learning, memory, sleep, cognition, drug addiction, and neurological disorders.

Course Considerations

High school students taking this undergraduate biology course should have completed advanced biology coursework that would be considered equivalent to a college-level introductory biology course (e.g. AP Biology).
