EDNS 555 - Neurobiology of Learning, Memory and Behavior

(3 credits)
This course will cover the neuroanatomy and neurophysiology of brain systems and circuits that give rise to, and regulate, the various phases of the learning process from perceptual registering to retrieval and consolidation. It will also cover the neural processes underlying the various types of memory (working memory, declarative, episodic and procedural), the processes of remembering and forgetting, the relationship between memory and behavior, and between memory and learning. The course will also discuss the various brain systems that give rise to behavior; self-regulation/executive functioning systems that regulate behavior; and the role of motivation in learning, memory and self-regulation of behavior and emotions.
