1 Brain Development and Evolution

2 Genetic Factors Underlie Human Behaviors

3 Genes Neurons Networks Behaviors

4 Neuroscience The goal of neural science is to understand the mind – how we perceive, move, think, and remember. Eric Kandel Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2000

5 Behavior can be examined at the level of individual nerve cells by answering five basic questions. 1.How does the brain develop? 2.How do nerve cells in the brain communicate with one another? 3.How do different patterns of interconnections give rise to different perceptions and motor acts? 4.How is communication between neurons modified by experience? 5.How is that communication altered by diseases?
