|Brain and Behavior (Tues. 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm)
This course will provide a foundation of how the brain works. We will provide the basic principles of brain organization and function and how this relates to human and animal behavior. We will discuss a broad range of topics, but will focus on those we believe will be of most interest to OLLI students, such as sensory processes, learning and memory, neurodegenerative diseases, drug action, and circadian rhythms. Drs. Hyson and Johnson will co-supervise presentations which will be led by graduate students in the Program in Neuroscience. Some presentations will include hands-on demonstrations and students will see real brains that have been preserved for educational purposes.
