PSYC 5587 Cellular Perspectives on Motivated Behavior (Fall/Spring: 3 )

Course Description

The goal of the course is to describe how changes in activity – and the composition – of single cells contribute to motivated behavior. Behaviors to be covered include but are not limited to: fear and anxiety, reward learning, addiction, feeding, pair bonding, and aging. The bulk of the reading and lecture materials will come from the primary literature and an extensive neuroscience background is required. As such this course is targeted for graduate students and only the exceptional undergraduate.
