The Workings of the Human Brain: From Brain to Behavior

We are no longer admitting high school students to the 2018 Summer Session. Visiting undergraduate students are welcome to apply.

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.
