NSCI0325A-W17

CRN: 11394

Brain Evolution
Evolution and Development of the Brain
Our brains are complex in both structure and function. But why? Why did we evolve to have a nervous system? What cellular and molecular events during development produce this complexity? Students will gain a deep understanding of the structures of the brain, selection factors during evolution, and how the nervous system develops. Through introductory lectures, readings, and discussions, students will discover the fascinating evolutionary history of the human brain.  (NSCI 0251 or PYSC 0301; open to junior and senior neuroscience majors; others by waiver).
