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", and hope you are too. Let's have some fun, and see what we can all make out of it together.
Students (and visitors) should be aware that this is a "non-traditional" science course in several respects (see A Vision of Science (and Science Education) in the 21st Century for further background).
The course is organized in relation to the following general presumptions (see syllabus for specifics):
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 -
The Brain is just the weight of God -
And from history:
|Mind and Body: Rene Descartes to William James|
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.
Second web paper comments emailed to seniors. Rest by the end of this week.
Final web papers due for seniors 5 pm, Friday, 7 May, for others 5 pm, Friday, 14 May, in box outside Room 106.
Please make one last visit to the course forum, reread your thoughts at the beginning of the semester, reflect on what has/has not changed in your ideas about the relationship between behavior and the nervous system.
Please be sure to complete the course evaluation form. If you haven't done so already, please turn it in when you turn in your final paper.
