PSIC-1204 Principles of neurosciences I

This course offers the initial elements for the basic training on neurosciences given to people pursuing studies on the sciences of learning. We are to present the basic aspects of anatomy and physiology of the nervous system, emphasizing on the relation of the nervous system - behavior. Within the anatomic aspects we include a quick study on the structure of the mammals’ ´nervous system, by conducting a compared study on the species. Within the physiological aspects we include the study of the fundamental principles of cellular biophysics. This course is supported on interactive-audiovisual material and also on laboratories where the students can have a first encounter to the neuroscience of behavior.
