ED 802 - Biological Bases of Behavior


This course reviews the knowledge of how behavior and cognition are controlled by neural and other physiological processes. The content falls into three areas: an examination of neurons and neurotransmitters; a description of sensory and motor systems; and a summary of various behavioral and cognitive phenomena (e.g., learning, memory, and psychiatric disorders) and how the central nervous system is involved in their control. This is a Psy.D. core curriculum course.
