Description

Relation of structure and function at various levels of neuronal integration. Topics include: functional neuroanatomy and neurophysiology, sensory and motor systems, centrally programmed behavior, sensory systems, sleep and dreaming, motivation and reward, emotional displays of various types, "higher functions" and the neocortex, and neural processes in learning and memory. In order to improve writing skills in describing experiments and reviewing journal publications in neuroscience, students are required to complete four homework assignments and one literature review with revision. Technical RequirementsMedia player software, such as Quicktime Player, RealOne Player, or Windows Media Player, is required to run the .mp3 files found on this cou Relation of structure and function at various levels of neuronal integration.

Description

Includes audio/video content: AV lectures. This course provides an outline of vertebrate functional neuroanatomy, aided by studies of comparative neuroanatomy and evolution, and by studies of brain development. Topics include early steps to a central nervous system, basic patterns of brain and spinal cord connections, regional development and differentiation, regeneration, motor and sensory pathways and structures, systems underlying motivations, innate action patterns, formation of habits, and various cognitive functions. In addition, lab techniques are reviewed and students perform brain dissections. Includes audio/video content: AV lectures.

Čutila in živčevje Sensory and Nervous systems

Description

S pomočjo didaktičnega pripomočka učenci utrdijo svoje znanje o čutilih in njihovem delovanju. Igro lahko oblikujemo kot spomin, učenci iščejo pare ali pa kot kartice, ki imajo na eni strani pojem, ki ga želimo utrditi in na drugi strani razlago. Igra bo trajnejša, če kartončke plastificiramo. Set of paired cards (image - description) regarding sensory and nervous systems that can be used for a game.

Neuropsychology

Description

In this course, the student will explore neuropsychology, or the study of the structure and function of the brain as it relates to psychological processes. This course will begin with a brief history of neuropsychology. The student will then study the nervous system and the structure of the brain, identifying its different lobes and cortices, before concluding with a discussion of how the brain provides us with higher functioning abilities (i.e., learning, remembering, and communicating). This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Psychology 402)
