Neurobiology and Behavior 2002
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:
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 were 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 ....
Here is the class list (updated Sunday, 27 January). If you're on it but don't want to be, let me know as soon as possible. If you're not on it but want to be, you can also let me know but additions will depend on deletions. Thanks again for interest/enthusiasm.
- Week 1
Does the "brain = behavior" hypothesis fit your observations/experiences/ways of making sense of the world? If so, explain why. If not, explain why not. In either case, suggest new observations which might serve to further explore the hypothesis. (one person's summary of responses)
