Course Description

In this course students will examine the link between systems level neuroscience and behavior. The course will focus on models used in research, and especially non-human models (e.g. dolphins, lobsters, etc). The course will address the basic circuits, electrophysiological phenomena, and modulators of neural systems as they pertain to animal behavior. Students will consider matters of neuroethology through discussion of recent advances in the literature/scientific publications.
