Recent advances in neuroscience are radically changing our understanding of how the brain works. The course first introduces the structure of the nervous system and the electrical and chemical signals at the core of brain function. Students then explore how the nervous system gathers and makes sense of information from the world around us. The last portion of the course focuses on plasticity, the concept that our brains are constantly changing, and its implications for nervous system development, memory, sexual behavior, sleep, and other complex behaviors.
