Course Description

Applied behavioural neuroscience draws upon empirical evidence from philosophy, psychology, biology, chemistry, and physics to better understand the biological basis of behaviour. Students explore a number of topics to better appreciate human diversity. Topics may include how people process taste and smells, how hormones regulate behaviour, and how psychoactive drugs interact with the nervous system. Students also learn about neuroimaging and how it is used to study topics such as the biological bases of learning and mental health. Students participate in hands-on lab activities and learn about research design and statistics that are commonly implemented in neuroscience research.

Prerequisite(s): A minimum "C+" grade in PSYC 1115 and 1215.
