Brain & Behavior: Mind or Machine? 

Ever get a feeling of Déjà vu?

How can we tell if we’ve seen something before?

Do memories change over time!?

How does the brain store memories?

Interested in Psychology? Cognitive Sciences? Medicine?

This is an introduction to the field of Behavioral Neuroscience.

I will show you that what we think we see, hear and remember can have little to do with the physical reality. I will guide you through fascinating human and animal research including responses of individual brain cells to changes in the world around us.

Students will be exposed to lively discussion, video clips, in-class activities, and tour Brain Research laboratories.

Seeing is believing... NOT!
