Neurobiology and Behavior 2002

Welcome to the home page of Biology 202 at Bryn Mawr College. Pleased to have you here. I'm looking forward to an interesting, enjoyable, productive semester of "getting it progressively less wrong". You too, I hope. Let's have some fun, and see what we can make out of it together. For everyone.

The Brain - is wider than the Sky -

For - put them side by side -

The one the other will contain

With ease - and You - beside-

Some course starting points:

From literature - Emily Dickinson (1830-1886):
The Brain - is wider than the Sky -
For - put them side by side -
The one the other will contain
With ease - and You - beside-

The Brain is deeper than the sea -
For - hold them - Blue to Bue -
The one the other will absorb -
As sponges - Buckets - do

The Brain is just the weight of God -
For - Heft them - Pound for Pound -
And they will differ - if they do -
As syllable from Sound -


And from history:

Mind and Body: Rene Descartes to William James

Course announcements

Browse around. Get a sense of what's here, and how it does (or doesn't) relate to things you might be interested in. Think about what you think you know about brain and behavior, and why, and what puzzles you, and why. And expect to be wrong, over and over again. That's the best starting place ... for any kind of scientific inquiry.

Thanks to everyone for their interest in this course. There are over 80 people who have registered and/or filled out course information forms. Fifty seems to me about the maximum who can effectively work together and so ....

Forty-one people both registered and were in class on Tuesday. Their names are on a class list here; these students have a slot in the course if they want to keep it. I've put remaining names on a wait list here. As I said in class, I'm hoping that individuals will make wise/compassionate choices themselves about how their needs for this course this year compare to the needs of others. Let's see how many of the forty-one and of the wait list stay aboard and I'll make up and post a final class list (with at least ten or so names from the wait list) by Friday evening.
