1 Psychology 2360 Brain and Behaviour

2  Welcome to the course This course presents the fundamentals of Neuroscience. Basic neuroscience – brain cells, neuroanatomy, how cells communicate. How we know the external world (the senses). How we interact in that world (movement). Physiology of sex, sleep and feeling.

3  Who am I? Dr. Jonathan Marotta Office: P310 Duff Roblin Phone: Have question you didn't think of in class? me. Or, setup an appointment. Grader/Teaching Assistant Tiffany Lazar Office Hours: Tuesdays 3:00 - 4:00pm DR P241

4 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.

5 Course web page Will contain lectures, useful information and answers to your ed 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.
