Textbook Carlson’s Foundations of Behavioral Neuroscience The bookstore has a custom version of this book created for this class. MyPsychLab Course ID: marotta11962 Do yourself a favour (i.e. DO THIS) read the text book before class and use the online lecture notes review the lectures regularly and re-read the text book after class this may seem like a lot to handle – trust me, its worth it.
Course web page http://um-neuroscience.blogspot.com/ Will contain lectures, useful information and answers to your emailed questions. Lectures will be posted one week or more before they are presented in class. Bring lecture notes to class so that you can just add to them and not have to write down everything I’m saying. I would encourage you to go through the lectures online as well because all the material doesn’t show up in printouts.
