BIOS 3330 - Neural Basis of Behavior

Overview of how animal nervous systems generate behavior. The first half introduces brain and neuronal physiology and anatomy, sensory and motor systems, sensory-motor integration, and motivational states. The second half uses exemplar neuroethological case studies to integrate this information.

Requisites: C- or better in BIOS 1710
Credit Hours: 3
Repeat/Retake Information: May be retaken two times excluding withdrawals, but only last course taken counts.
Lecture/Lab Hours: 3.0 lecture
Grades: Eligible Grades: A-F,WP,WF,WN,FN,AU,I
Learning Outcomes:
  • Basic principles of sensory information processing in several major sensory modalities.
  • Basic principles of motor control and organization of motor behaviors including escape reflexes, fixed action patterns, and sensory generated motor patterns.
  • Mechanisms underlying learning and memory.
  • Understand the fundamentals of cellular neurophysiology as applied to the function of neural circuits mediating behavior.
