About this item

This text introduces the basics of behavioral neuroscience, covering the origins of the field and the structure of the brain, the effects of drugs on it, technology used to study it, and neural systems that underlie feeling, moving, seeing, smelling, and hearing, as well as biological and behavioral aspects of functions like feeding, sleeping, and sexual behavior, and the role of the endocrine system as an interface between the brain and the body and how the environment and behavior affect hormones and brain activity. It also discusses emotional and cognitive processes like learning, memory, language, spatial cognition, attention, consciousness, and decision making, and brain dysfunction.
