PSYCH 4390

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2022-2023.

This course explores what is known, and what remains unknown, about the neural circuits that control social behavior, including parental behavior, sexual behavior, aggression, and vocalization. How do neural circuits control and coordinate distinct social behaviors? How are sex-typical social behaviors generated? How do past experiences and internal states influence social behavior, and what are the neural mechanisms for these effects? This course focuses mainly, although not exclusively, on research performed in non-human animals, and we'll also examine differences and similarities in the neural circuits for social behavior across species.

When Offered Spring.
