Psychobiology is the study of the biology of behavior. Because the production and regulation of behavior is largely the job of the nervous system, this course will involve a study of the central nervous system and how it works. This study of behavioral neuroscience will include the physiological bases of sensation, sex, learning and memory, motivation, cognition, and abnormal behavior. By its very nature, psychobiology is a multidisciplinary field which draws from the fields of biology, psychology, chemistry, mathematics and physics.
