On Serendip


Neurobiology and Behavior, 1999

Students were expected, in lieu of a midterm examination, to select a topic of interest to them and write a short paper based on exploration of materials available on the web. As elsewhere on Serendip, these are intended not as the final word on any topic but rather as expressions of the interests and perspectives of individuals and as windows to available information and perspectives available elsewhere.
