BIOL 1080 - Nerve Cells, Networks and Animal Behavior

Ecolocation in bats, development of learning in songbirds, paralytic goats and toxic fish. In this course, we’ll examine these and other examples from nature to model the fundamental properties of neurons and the neural circuits that underlie various aspects of animal behavior. Building an understanding of the structure & function of the nervous system will include consideration of the evolutionary and developmental emergence of its properties.
