Neurobiology and Behavior, Week 3

Welcome to the on-line forum associated with the Biology 202 at Bryn Mawr College. Its a way to keep conversations going between course meetings, and to do so in a way that makes our conversations available to other who may in turn have interesting thoughts to contribute to them. Leave whatever thoughts in progress you think might be useful to others, see what other people are thinking, and add thoughts that that in turn generates in you.

As always, you're free to write about whatever thoughts you add this week. But if you need something to get you started, are you thinking differently about the brain, about behavior, given that the smallest boxes are neurons?  that there are huge numbers of them? that every neuron is a probabilistic computer?  that "inputs" mean signals in sensory neurons and "outputs" means signals in motor neurons? that most neurons are interneurons?
