PY 324 - Neuroethology


Neuroethology is a branch of Neuroscience addressing the neural basis of animal behavior through an evolutionary and comparative approach.  The main focus of the course is understanding how the nervous system translates incoming sensory information into behavioral activity.  Students will gain a basic understanding of the diverse sensory systems designed to capture various forms of environmental energy, such as light and magnetism, and how this information is used to create relevant percepts, such as recognition of prey and protector, and elicit natural behaviors, such as escape or communication.

Four credits.

Prerequisite(s): PY 105 , or BI 335 , or permission of the instructor
