* NEU 258 / PSY 258 (STN) No Audit
Fundamentals of Neuroscience
This is a survey course on neuroscience, focusing mainly on sensory and motor processing in the primate brain. How does information from the outside world get into the brain, what neuronal pathways does it follow, how is it processed and used to construct an internal model of three-dimensional reality, and how does the brain choose and coordinate the correct behavioral response?
