NEUROSCI 101: Biological Bases of Behavior (Team-based Learning)

Spring 2020

Instructor: Christina Williams

This course provides an introduction to the methods, models and reasoning that have led to discoveries about brain-behavior relations, and a critical evaluation of the current theories that guide our thinking about the neurobiology, the development and evolution of sensory and cognitive processes, sleep, pain, emotion, hunger and thirst, as well as maternal and sexual behavior patterns.

In-class experiences are organized around principles of team-based learning, with students collaborating in small teams for readiness assessments and team applications.

This course fulfills the gateway requirement for the Neuroscience major. First years are welcome.
