Learn how the nervous system produces behavior, how we use our brain every day, and how neuroscience can explain the common problems afflicting people today. We will study functional human neuroanatomy and neuronal communication, and then use this information to understand how we perceive the outside world, move our bodies voluntarily, stay alive, and play well with others.

TOP REVIEWS FROM UNDERSTANDING THE BRAIN: THE NEUROBIOLOGY OF EVERYDAY LIFE
it was overall a best experience to learn this course by Professor Peggy Mason.
I will strongly recommend this high yield course to all those interested in learning neurobiology.
The course is a really comprehensive introduction to neurobiology, which helped me to supplment my studies to biological psychology, also as a great beginning to my pursue in neuroscience studies !
It was a great learning experience!!! In-depth understanding of brain and its functioning was clearly explained. Brain lab sessions were extremely unique and has added great value to the course!!!
This course has been an eye-opener for me and has helped me to better understand the brain from a perspective of empathy towards those suffering from debilitating disorders, thanks to Professor Mason.
