Introduction to the biological bases of psychological processes and behavior. The class will also provide an overview of the physiology and anatomy of the nervous system, followed by a survey of brain mechanisms of perception, cognition, learning and emotion. Biological perspectives on drug action and mental disease will also be explored.
